I previously posted the earlier photos but several Jocks asked that I upload the final project. Here’s the Cherry slab table in the kitchen. The table is finished with 3 coats of Danish Oil followed by 3 coats of Polyurethane. The steel legs were made by a craftsman in Baltimore and I think the slab looks great with the contrasting steel legs. The original posting can be found here

Incredible slab. I’m not always a fan of the live edge stuff, but this one is incredible. Perfection.

Sweet! Anyone who’s worked with large slabs knows how hard they are to keep flat. Enjoy- you’ll have it for a lifetime.

Looks awesome, did you do anything in the cracks to prevent them from expanding or anything?

The slab with the butterflies turned out just awesome! I was all prepared to not like the steel base but I honestly like the way it turned out.

Gixxerjoe04, I inlayed butterflies to stop the cracks from continuing. But, I didn’t fill the cracks with epoxy. Several people recommended I do that but I really like the cracks the way they are. I guess we’ll just have to vacuum the crumbs occasionally.
