Live edge ash coffee table. The only new stock used are the legs. The rest of the 1” and 5/8” is very old stock given to me by a friend. The skirts and bottom slat supports are mortise and tenon joined, using my router table. I rabbeted the slats to 3/4” to fit the cross supports, and just glued them in place.
I finished it with two coats of Watco Danish Oil Dark Walnut, then 2 coats of Natural Watco.
I am currently making a larger table in the same design for the cottage living room, from a 4×6 eight foot cedar crib beam from a local wharf, that I have had in the garage for many years !

As alaways, you do a fantastic job with those creative skills! What a great way to clear room for more stock :)
Very nice design. The danish walnut oil finish is most impressive too.
