This is a live edge coffee table I made from a cherry slab I got for free. I flattened it with a router sled trick. Works awesome but it takes a little work. The rest of the lumber for it is solid cherry I cut from my land free hand with a chainsaw. It’s all mortice and tenon with hidden draw pins and tusk tenons from sapele on the bottom stretcher. The blue rock stuff in the top is a slag from iron Orr furnaces that we found up in the woods way back in the Adirondack s at my camp next to an old mine shaft from 100 years ago. I think it’s called coke slag? It’s almost like a glass. The butterfly keys where cut by hand and also sapele. The finish is 5 coats of Bush oil and buffed out.
