The second pine slab table I made. This one uses a cantilever design, which is remarkable strong. The legs are barn board douglas fir that I found in a machine shed.

11 cherry bowtie inlays hold the cracks together.

Kept both natural edges on the slab because they’re nice.

The legs are not attached to the top so it’s easy to break it down.

Finished with a natural stain and the top has several coats of lacquer (not liking it too much) and the legs are polyurethane.

Great idea!!I was looking for a small table build to put the pc on and off the dinning room table when not in use.The bow ties give it a special touch.

I can imagine my kids trying to sit on the edge of that table and breaking it free from the notches via splitting of the top ‘triangle.’ Looks like the cantilever pieces are 2 1/2” thick maybe, so that must be the strength!

Love the idea, looks great.
