This is a profject that we are really proud to show. It is a White Pine Slab Table Top that is 3” x 45” x 10’ long.
The White Pine table top is made of two 3” thick kiln dried Pine slabs that we joined together, then stabilized with inlayed iron bars on the underside of the table top to avoid any movement in the slab. We sanded then sealed with several coats of poly and a finish coat of rub on poly, with live edge mitered ends and inlayed bow ties.
The table has an amazing area that shows a ripple in the grain that looks like the wood has been pushed together like a piece of paper. *See photos.

Beautiful slab! I like everything about it, the bowties, the live edge, and the finish!

I’m concerned about wood movement, though. The slab is going to expand and contract no matter how restrained it is. I’m concerned about those mitered corners opening up.

Kellie & Skye – Love, Love LOVE this! So beautiful! We just finished a live edge slab bar with turquoise inlay, but I’m so new here, not sure how to post it. Where can I see more of your projects?

Great looking table. How about some pictures of the stabilizing detail. Also what does the base look like?

Good build, I didn’t expect that wipe on poly was used on this. Post some pictures of the inlayed iron bars

Here at our mill we have manufactured and sold Kiln Dried (10%) White Pine Slabs for the over 10 years. Our process to stabilize the wide wood slabs is to dado cut with a double bladed skill saw. Insererted perferated angle iron stablizes. We use expandable glue (such as Gorilla Glue) to adhear the perferated angle iron in the dadoed skill saw cut. Installing the prefitted iron then we screw it tight. If the bottomed needs to flush then router it.
