A new adventure into Contemporary Rustic furniture. A metal worker friend has wanted to work on some of these projects with me. We finally got started. Polished steel base. The top is Hackberry in the center and elm on the outside. It has breadboard ends. Sprayed lacquer finish.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome

Monte ,

I love the visual movement! Interesting choice in edge joining. Allows for expansion and contraction.

No suggestion, just awe of beauty of this piece!
It reminds me of a changing sky, in the midwest, from clear to stormy or stormy to clear, with swirling clouds.

Monte that looks great, I was suspect about the idea of you running a perimeter around the slab but you did it a solid! How much epoxy did it end up requiring?
