This rustic table was made from a slab lf Eastern Red Cedar and a limb from the same tree. I love working with cedar. It cuts with ease and has a wonderful aroma. The shop has a cedar smell for days. To bad the finish locks in the cedar smell.

Niiice job of finishing!! I had the same thought as Jim with the chairs. I thought at first that the table was a barstool type chair with the branch extensions being footrests.

Great work.

Wow that is an amazing piece. Great job!
If you don’t mind would u be willing to share your finish secret to maintain the deep red of the cedar? I’m working on small products and am struggling to find information on how to achieve the deep red finish!
Again incredible work there! Be very proud!
