This one is actually a couple years old. I just came across a picture of it that was taken just after I finished it, and decided to post. My wife had been wanting a table for the deck for some time, and had threatened to go out and buy one (That’s her usual way of kicking my ass in gear). Shortly after, I came across a couple of nice pine slabs at a lumber yard and got to work… Happy wife! Wish I had more pictures to post; it’s now covered up for the winter.

Outstanding work. The super strong legs look great and the live edge is one-of-a-kind. Sounds good you have a finish on there for the outdoors. Well done, and thanks for sharing.

Absolutely the best Live edge piece I have seen in years. Freaking great. I am sick of this live edge craze and yet you pulled it off as the perfect use for the style. Bravo – really a great piece,

Wives do know when to push the button that’s for sure! But it was for a good cause indeed, looking at how remarkable this gem turns out to be.
