Sorting through elm lumber to make a breakfast table and workbench, I came across a board with a lot of character. After thinking about it for awhile I decided to make a live-edge hall table. I found another board with bark still intact and crosscut that for the legs. My wife had found some padauk boards a few years ago that I had never had occasion to use, so I used this as a crossbar. I more or less used the padauk board without any modifications, with some irregularities on the ends.

I finished the table with Danish Oil and Polycrylic. I buffed out the top using White Diamond compound and carnauba wax. The joinery is aliphatic glue.

Thanks for looking! Comments/critiques/suggestions are welcome.

Great job. I love the simplicity of it. I have plans to do something very similar to this for my foyer but I will be adding a couple of drawers.
