I bought this burl slab about 6 years ago as an ugly finished coffee table with heavy log legs that didn’t go with the beautiful top. It maybe a redwood burl, but I can’t be sure.
The top is pitted with soft and hard woods that did not collaborate with any of my hand planes, and even sanding was a problem. Taking the rough finish in consideration I decided to put a heavy epoxy resin finish that will give the slab a smooth finish. It worked great.
The legs are base on a Nakashima design that combines the rustic top with an elegant and modern support that is graceful and sturdy.
