Had an old slab that I cut when removing some trees a couple of years ago and decided to make a table out of it. I still wanted to take advantage of seeing the grain in the defects in the slab so this gave me the opportunity to try clear epoxy resin to fill the defects. What fun and learned a few things in the process. Thanks for looking.

Dale, this is really a nice looking table. Great job with the epoxy. This is something I have been wanting to do.

Fantastic work. We have a couple of slabs ready; but the legs were being a problem. Now might have to try your method. Thanks.

Back to the drawing board guys I need to make to stand base a little bit bigger because it’s pretty unstable as small as I have here. Just let you know otherwise it works fine. Just letting you know otherwise it works fine

I thought the table legs would have been better if they were splayed outward a little more for better stability but it’s hard to know if my thinking was right just by looking at photos. It will be interesting to see what you come up with to satisfy your needs Dale! I still believe the design is very nice! Keep us posted!

Dale, what a great string of photo’s showing your build process. i especially like photo #4 showing how your stabilized the base for glue up. Great looking project and i also think the legs would look a bit more in sync with the slab if they were a bit wider but with the same design (just personal preference). Anyhow, great project..
