Project Information

This project was started all the way back in 2017 (I'm old and I had some health issues, so there were a lot of very long gaps in between being able to work on it). I'm definitely glad to finally get it finished….better late than never, eh?

The wood slab is a cottonwood crosscut slab . It's about 4 inches thick planed down top and bottom with my router planer/sled, so very heavy!

I widened major cracks using my scroll saw, filled them with white quartz from our property, and set them in epoxy.

The legs are 2" artisan pipes and floor flanges…figured I'd try the 'industrial look. Came out nicer than I expected it to.

This table is going to a very dear friend as appreciation for all he's done for our family over the years.

Hope he and his family like it!!!

I like it. The extreme color variations on end grain is always so cool to see. What did you use for color? Whatever it was, it came out great with the outside edge matching the end grain nicely. Lots of times the end grain gets too dark and looks foreign to the live edge, but this came out great.

Honestly, swirt, I don't even remember how many different colors of finish I tried thinking they'd be cool only to sand them all back down to natural grain. It's a crosscut slab, so sealing the end grain was a project all by itself. Nothing worked until I gave it a good coat of epoxy on top of Watco Danish Oil Natural finish, sanded that down, and then applied more Watco Danish Oil 'natural' followed by multiple coats of Minwax gloss followed by a final coat of beeswax. What a process. You taxed my memory by making me think about start to finish and everything in between.
