Dam Table
Backstory on this…. I have a client who makes apothecary items and recently she asked if I knew where any cottonwoods were for the being the nice guy that I’m said sure. Long story short, wacked three cottonwoods down next to a beaver dam, figuring that the buds will go to my client and the beavers would have the rest (as they were constructing a dam very close by)....Move ahead 3-4 weeks and i went back to see what the little guys had been up to..turn out the had pulled most of the trees away with the exceptions of a few bigger pieces.
Since i’m a creative type guy I grabbed the larger ’’logs’’ (6-12”) and brought them home with the intention of doing something with them…. Move ahead to last weekend, wife bring up the conversation of our crappy deck table and since I build high end tables for clients ’’why do we not have a ’’nicer’’ table’’.. SO you can see where this went to ..
The top is fir left over from another project and the remainder is cottonwood (dark leg is actually wild cherry)[ .. I think the only thing I milled with my chainsaw is the logs and after that I ran everything thru my large bandsaw…
I’m happy , the wife is happy and i’m confident the beavers are content.

That is an awesome dam table. I like it very much. Did you do anything to the bottom of the legs to keep them from wicking up water?
