Here’s a live edge, waterfall coffee table that I made from an Ash slab. It wasn’t without challenges as the slab had warped badly because of my poor stacking! I left it upright :-/ it turned out well though a little thinner than I would have liked. Just for completeness I installed three butterflies to hold a split and filled with resin.

Happy woodworking everyone

Very nice table, love the figure and grain of the timber plus the seamless joint at the end is prefect.
Well done sir

Is there a horizontal stretcher we’re not seeing? I don’t see anything to keep it from folding to the side if something heavy is on it.

Very pretty.

No stretcher, reliance on the joinery which is pretty well squared up and me not overloading it with too many items.

Good looking table, I like how the grain flows smoothly from the top and down the end of the table.
