This is my first attempt at a live edge table with turquoise inlay on the top. The iron used in the legs was welded from material purchased at any local hardware store.

Looks heavy but looks beautiful, well done.

Really a good looking heavy duty bar table!
I bet you won’t knock that one over even after you have knocked down a few too many!
That must have been hard to assemble considering the weight of that top.

Damn, that thing looks heavy, LOL. What wood is it?

Great job.

Pretty clever treatment of the legs being a single log, quartered and tied together with your own hardware. Well done.

What kind of wood is it made of. Nice that there is not allot of cracks from the drying end grain of the a log slab. Hope they don’t develope in a dry house, quarter log legs are a great idea.

Yes it is quite heavy, the top weighs approximately 45 pounds. Luckily the table will sit in the basement. The top of the table is from a cottonwood tree that fell during an October blizzard in 2014. The slab was taken out of the tree four years ago and sat in my garage drying. Lots of the cracks filled with sawdust and glue as well as the turquoise inlay. The finish on the top is poured resin, hoping to avoid further cracking with that as well. Thanks for the feedback and interest.

So beautiful and awesome set up. Only I’m not fun of glossy finishes, especialy on live edge – but that’s just me.
