This a live edge coffee table made of white and red oak. There were a lot of first for me on this one, which were hand chiseled mortise and tenon joints, hand chiseled butterfly keys, a hand cut dovetail and the use of a router sled to plane the slab down. All and all it turned out pretty good for such a new experience but my next one will definitely be better! The finish is a hand rubbed boiled linseed oil.

Very nice! Love the bowties.

If the BLO smell persists a coat of rubbed on shellac or wipe on urethane/ms will cover it up.
