This is a spalted sycamore live edge coffee table. It is 52” L x 18.5” H x 16-22” W. The top is 1.5” thick. The base is made from hard maple using bridle joints. The base is derived from Nakashima’s Frenchman Cove dining table. The first photo is the finished table. Photo 2 is the base parts awaiting assembly. The base is jointed to the top using #10 screws in slotted holes. Assemble of the table included the usual epoxy filling of the cracks, cutting and installing the butterfly splines (photo 4-6). The table was machine sanded to 400 grit and then hand sanded to 800. The finish is Odie’s oil and Odie’s wood butter.
Some additional photos of the repaired cracks follow:
