This is my first project that Im really proud of. a lot of new techniques and big leaps in skills. I bought the slab at a local mill i found a few towns over. I dont have a pic of the router jig used to bring the slab down to thickness, but it is very similar to the Wood whisperer type. After bringing it to thickness i added ends to reflec the slight curve in the raw edges. Lots of thin coats of oil based poly thinned with mineral spirits later, a lot of hand sanding down to 1000 grit yielded a glass smooth surface. The trestle legs are Cherry and Maple. they received my first real thru tenons that were pinned in place.
Thanks for looking. Everyone here help inspire me everyday.
