This is a live edge cedar coffee table I made. It has metal legs and is finished with glaze coat. I did find out the hard way that cedar is very porous and needed to be sealed prior to the glaze coating. My second attempt with glaze coat came out pretty good.

This table is beautiful. One of these days I’m gonna have to give this a try. Well done.

I did a similar table in dawn redwood, I hate the base I made for it. Did you make your legs in the shop or order? If you ordered them, where did you find them? Beautiful slab, the shape is incredible!
