River that puppy! I have one I am milling from some logs and I think I am going that route as well. For me it's the question of what type legs would look best with the mesquite (no hairpins!)Cleaning up the slab
Last week I picked up a really nice looking slab of mesquite from Rockler of all places. It's nice and flat and 1.5"x18"x62" roughly. Thought before I went ahead and started work on a much larger slab table using the book-matched honeylocust slabs I have for my dining table, I'd get a feel for how this work would proceed and the trials and tribulations I will obviously encounter along the way. I could use a cocktail table in the TV room, so that's the plan for this. No design yet, but I figured I'd start the process by cleaning it up and dimensioning it.
Not sure if it will be everyone's favorite - a "river table" - or just left as a live edge slab, but it will be something when I'm done. So stay tuned
That'd also make a very nice bench.
