First attempt at a river table. Not perfect but turned out okay. Spalted maple slab with blue tinted resin. Walnut legs.

Beautiful. I’m working on one now. Walnut slab and I tinted the resin with copper color pigment. What resin did you use? I used Ecopoxy. Also what did you use for a finish?

Thanks. I used stone-coat countertops casting resin. Really easy to work with

This is a beautiful river table and you have done a wonderful job on it. It’s a real eye catcher.

That looks awesome.

I had one technical question.

Does there need to be a board tying the two legs together to keep them from splaying?

That is actually one of the coolest table tops I think I have ever seen. Excellent job.

The legs are lagged into the top with 2 1/2 inch screws so I didn’t tie them together. They seem to be pretty stable.

Excellent.
Agree about the legs. The one I built has 4 lags per leg set. 2 for each half. Not a bit of give.
