I had this slab of walnut with multiple defects that I really didn’t want to waste. Still had a few live edge sections that I cleaned up. I thought about adding dovetail keys to a few small areas but I decided against it because I wanted an unaltered look to the defects. The bottom legs have a modern painted look and are made up of random scrap wood that all have some small defects also. The intent is to be used a buffet and also a small wine bar. Holds 3 bottles perfectly within the leg and up to 9 glasses. Minimalism and modern designs are almost as big as rustic is right now. I think this could work in any of those 3 designs. Hopefully everyone else likes it too. Thanks for looking everyone!

Love the slab, I prefer wood like this with a story than a perfectly clear peice. Great job.

Thanks Ken, I tend to like pieces like this more. The natural defects help it stand apart from other pieces because nothing can duplicate this look.

That is really really cool! I would definitely be proud of that. And gives me ideas for some knotty pieces of walnut I have laying around!

Great looking table—and beautiful live-edge slab! You were right to keep all of Nature’s handiwork, and display it so well!

This is a nice clean piece and very practical. It has a great looking top on it.

Thanks everyone! I’m finally getting back into the shop after a decent break due to the new job. Can’t wait to finish and post more projects. I have a coffee table from my own furniture line almost done that is coming up very soon. Just waiting on the glass to be cut now.

I love it! I think the slab is fantastic and I love the built in wine bottle holders. The only problem I see is the practical removal of the wine bottles. Hoe do you get them out of the leg when the base is against the wall?

Logan, the gap between the legs holds it in place while it is hanging. When you want to remove a bottle you just tilt it up, push the bottle forward about an inch and pull it out at an angle. It’s extremely easy, but still sturdy. I’ve left some bottles in there while my kids have run around the past week. Haven’t knocked one out yet, and the baby couldn’t pull it out either.
