Another Cedar Coffee table build

This coffee table is 40” wide and 4’ long and 20” tall as per the customer’s orders. The customer wanted round legs and to show as much of the red in the eastern red cedar as possible, the leg’s were my favorite part of this build. I took 4×4 cedar post and turned them to the desired size and coloring. I learned some new techniques and was really happy with the results. We finished it with a product called Famowood sold at Lowe’s, it’s a glaze coat epoxy and it works really well, and even learned a few more tricks to glassing too. Just a great learning project and got paid to do it LOL

Beautiful project. Could you explain more about the Famowood product and how it is compared to just regular epoxy? Thanks..

I really like that look, thinking of doing something like that for the porch. How thick is the top slab?
