I was fortunate to pick up this mesquite slab this summer from a fellow jock (Hey Bluesuedeboots) while on vacation in South Texas. It’s a 10/4 beauty that has a ton of character and had LARGE coffee table written all over it. The legs were antique hand forged sconces that I altered (destroyed) to fit the table. After about a case of sandpaper and 5 coats of Arm-R-Seal, it’s finally finished. Thanks for looking

Awesome.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

This is an outstanding rustic table and that top is so impressive. It’s a real eye catcher.
