I used part of an oak slab I got from a friend with a slab cutter mobile band saw unit. Sliced it and poured epoxy with copper Alumilite mixed in to create the “river”. Added some gem stones in a knot hole with clear epoxy. For the legs I made two trapezoidal supports out of paduak.

Nice work. I like how you matched the river color to the leg color.

Great project. Thanks for posting. How did you join the leg pieces to make the trapezoid? The only success I have had with trapezoidal legs is pocket holes. I’ve tried bridle joints and dowel joints to no avail.

G5Flyr, Thanks for your comment. The 47 and 43 degree corner joints were drilled with countersinks. I used a jig and clamps to hold them in place after applying epoxy and fastening two #10 2 1/2” square drive screws in each corner. Nice Gulfstream!
