This slab was a leftover end from another table project. The figuring was so amazing that I wanted to use it for something special. I came up with the pedastil idea when 4 legs just didn’t look right.
Originally I wanted to steam bend the legs, which didn’t work out so I cut them out of solid stock. Not knowing how much the top would move, I attached it to the legs using figure eight desktop fasteners.
Since the top was an uneven slab, it was a challenge to fit the legs to get the top level.
After filling the voids with epoxy (my first attenpt – a learning experience!) I squeegeed on two thin coats of clear epoxy then finished with two coats of poly. Thanks for looking!

Love the look the live edge gives it. The three legged style lends itself to the wood and finish you used. Excellent job. Mel
