My grandpa saved this slice from the trunk of downed Alaskan spruce, so I decided it would make a neat table. The legs are post oak limbs that are attached with dowel screws.

Nice looking table. There is some pretty grain in there. What did you use to finish it?A piece with some family history is extra special.

This is great looking. I’ve made a couple table tops using slabs and plan to do it again with some trees we have having to cut in our yard now. I saw one today that a couple bought many, many years ago-it is redwood with the bark still on, a fantastic finish and legs similar to yours. Thanks for shaing and welcome to LJs!

Looks great. Did you take it all down with the belt sander?

Thank you for the compliments, everyone.
To finish it, I put on a couple coats of minwax “Early American” (I think, I don’t remember) and a coat of polyurethane.
I took it all down with the belt sander. That took a while.
