Simply amazing piece of work. Love the burl and really like how you charred the base. Like the inlays that you have in it too. Beautiful job on this.

That is a beautiful table. How did you blacken the log for the base? Also, what finish did you use?

I used a little hand bottle torch. Cherry burns really easily as anyone who’s cut some on a table saw can attest.

That burl slab looks like you have a lot of hours in it! Did you fill all those cracks/splits, sand it flat, and then do epoxy pour?

I do have quite a few. There were a lot of small surface checking cracks that I filled with CA, then the larger ones with CA and crushed malachite. The finish is 2 coats of 1lb cut shellac and several more of Waterlox original. No epoxy.

Thanks for the quick reply. Don’t know why I assumed that was a poured epoxy on the top.
