Trimmed a couple trees in back of the house. I shaved the bark off while the tree was standing. The bark comes off allot easier while the tree is wet. Used epoxy risin between the pieces, I added sawdust to the clear epoxy to give it color. It sanded fine. The finish is polyurethane.

Beautiful end table for a cabin. I’ve seen some similar tables before but the outsides were framed with finished lumber, I like yours much better. Great job.

That looks great. What species is the tree and did you let it dry for a while before milling and assembling the table?

Wow! Great job! Is there some sort of brace underneath the top? I can’t imagine that epoxy is the only thing connecting the legs to the top. Thanks for posting.

I used cedar and beech…I did dry it fro a couple months before I started but I removed the bark when it was wet.
