Beautiful all around. Love the grain in the top, and the saw marks, and the finish… what’s not to love? Maybe trying to move it?

How do you prepare a base of cedar like that?

Old man? I think you’ve found a sure way to stay young. From the slabs to the two cedar stump-bases, this is a very challenging project. It sure looks nice.

I can see why you are saying that this is the last one, I had to give up running 8 foot long logs through my
band saw this summer. The small ones that I can handle do not produce enough wood, and the big ones,
even with a sled are a bit to heavy. That is a great looking rustic table. Thank you for sharing.

That is a beautiful behemoth! Certainly not a piece that’s going to be moved around a lot. How much does the table weigh, in it’s entirety?
