This is a mesquite slab that had a crevice that allowed me put lay down some river rocks and the tiniest koi fish I have ever seen. I added some clear epoxy to allow the koi fish to be seen as if it was a pond. The legs are made out of poplar and stained them using and ebony and stain that almost makes it look black. This was the first time that I have ever played out with angled legs and I was challenged with it a bit. I definitely learned a lot when it comes to angles. I buddy of mine has a domino, which helped putting the legs together.
My wife absolutely loved it.

Items used:
Mesquite Slab
Poplar for legs
Polymere Technologies Epoxy
River Rock from Dollar Tree
Koi fish from Amazon.

Let me know what you all think.

That is one big piece of mesquite! And the color and grain are fantastic – nice job.
