Rustic table 18” high, Honey Mesquite, 3.75” slab. Sanded with 60grit belt and 100grit palm sander, wire brushed edge. Clear epoxy filler and gloss poly finish with tung oil finish on top( still needs another coat of oil though). Forstner drill underneeth, turned pegged inserted legs with yellow glue. Very heavy, its what the customer wanted. Wonderful smelling wood, easy sanding.

Now that is a slab of lumber! I’ll bet it weighs a ton.

Good looking rustic table!
