The company I work for has a sister company of Arborists. Occassionaly I will walk the pile to see what is out there. I found this one out in the pile. I originally got it for the top, but once the bark got pealed off and the whole thing cleaned up it revealed the wicked grain on it.

I used my router and a planer sled to plane it to thickness. A wire brush on a drill and lots of sanding to clean up the sides. I lost count on how many coats of Satin Deft Lacquer were put on. The whole thing was then waxed and buffed out.

Legs are some extra hairpin legs I had floating around that I painted black. Last picture shows the crack filling process, 2 total cans were used.

Beautiful table! Love the graining in that slab…

Really beautiful! I like the contrast color of the crack filler with the wood. What did you use as the crack filler?

That’s a fine table and a fine box as well. Congratulations on the both of them.
