Mesquite table roughly 30” round x 2.5 thick slab with a cast iron base that I picked up along the way. Chrysocolla and copper with black sand were used for filler and an clear epoxy flood coat finish.

Your table looks really really cool! I love it. Excellent work!

Question: where did you by Chrysocolla?

A spectacular mesquite ‘cookie’ table. I have no idea how you kept it from splitting/cracking/falling apart like all my crosscut ‘cookies’ have!

Thanks LJ peeps!

I stack the cookies with cardboard in between in a dark shed for a few months for slow dry.

I hadn’t heard about the no sticker/cardboard trick. I will try that!

Interesting way to dry them. I’ve never worked with cookies, but they are real hot right now. Might have to give that a shot.

Great use of the slab! This is definitely exquisite.

Amazing! I love this. What a great idea to fill the wood that way. And the metal base gives it a little industrial addition. This is a beautiful table in every way.
