I found this board at my local lumber store and had to have it. 42” long, 18” at its widest point, and a live edge – it was a beautiful board! I decided on a coffee table because of the size of the slab and came up with a leg design for it (which changed 3 times into what you see here).
The legs are curly maple and are attached to the top with a cleat. The bottom shelf is 2 boards jointed and biscuit joined and then I used some 1/2 lap joinery and pocket screws attacking the bottom shelf to the legs. It was all finished with Danish oil and wipe-on poly.
The last picture shows the grain of the top – you can see why I loved this board and had to have it. This was sold to a friend who needed a coffee table.
