Very nice, I remember my stepfather who was a geologist had furniture custom built around slab cut rocks that were part of his molybdenum mine finds. They would glow in the dark for years. (Ha) Thanks for the post!

Nice table and for a good cause. I too hope they get a good bid on it. My wife thought it might be a little heavy to move it for cleaning though. Maybe a bachelor will bid on it.

mike, your wife is right, we desinged the slates to be removed, simply lift from under each slate, and then clean. also if you decide not to use slate just add glass, ect.

Nice table. Since the slate is removable you could put X’s and O’s on the back for tic-tac-toe and it would double as a game table. ;-)

Real nice of you to make a donation like this.

Nice design and finish. Gives me the idea to make one slimmer, say 2 tile by 4 as my living room at present is not very big. Well done
