Day one on my new commission, a 6 to 8 seat live edge dining table. The log is about 75”, the 3 slabs are 2 3/4” thick, and vary in thickness from 28 to 39” wide. With the amount of cut off branch growth we expected some interesting figure, but all the spault was a complete surprise! Pieces will be sent to the kiln for 5 to 6 weeks next Saturday, along with a load of holly a friend of mine and I have acquired. In future posts I will share the working drawings for the table design.

It’s going to be beautiful with those slabs. Good luck sir.

I hope so! This will be the first piece of furniture I have attempted.
