Here’s a riverstone table that I recently sold out of a gallery in Avila Beach CA. The legs are Manzanita, and the top is a slab from a local walnut. There are splines behind each stone that join the two 1/2s of the table together. Comments and Critiques are welcome!!!

This is a cool table, I like it in a lot of ways, I’m fighting with the rock and how it was put into the piece. The base must’ve been a pain in the butt to sit flat. Overall it’s a definite thumbs up.

A whimsical piece of art that is very beautiful and looks challenging to create! Great job!

I’d be interested to know how you leveled the legs…

Lots of questions regarding how to level the legs! Its actually very easy. U find the highest gap, between the surface and the leg with the table set level, and you scribe to the depth of that gap around every leg. them you use a handsaw and cut them off. The legs that are closer to the middle are a little shoter than those on the outside, as you want the outside legs to have more tension on them. I usually use a sander to even this tension up.
