A Coffee Table I recently made for my Dad. The top is Spalted Maple 1” x 28’ x 48”, flattened with a router on a sled followed by handplanes and scrapers. The Legs are Broadleaf Maple and the shelf is Black Walnut. Finished with many coats of Arm-R-Seal and polished. The top was really challenging to seal, cracks filled with epoxy and then I painted the whole thing with CA glue and sanded before applying the Arm-R-Seal. Pretty happy with the way this thing turned out. Hoping for some better pics soon. Last two pics are the matching side table made with the offcuts and some figure from the big slab. Thanks for looking!

Beautiful design. I like the contrast between the live edge top and the simple, clean lines of the base.

Wow. Great work. As much trouble as putting that finish on gave you, you cant tell at all. Excellent finish.

Came out great, nice job. The finish on the top is really well done. How did you attach the legs to the slab?

@bobasaurus: the top is attached something like this, slots routered into the tops of the legs
