Phil, how dare you vary from the normal river table with a hunk of lumber in the middle ? What were you thinking ?
Whatever it was , you were absolutely right ! You’ve created one beautiful table – great job !

I am a sucker for contrast; awesome choice in epoxy colour. Please share how you achieved the matte finish and more photos. Very nice work!

Very attractive piece. Anyone who spills on it should be punished.
Well done.

About the finish – I use Osmo PolyX two coats very thin. The wood ws sanded to 180 and the epoxy to 400 grit.

I’ve added a few more photos. Thanks for all the kind words.
