Heres the last redwood slab i have,
These slabs were dug up at a excavation site for a foundation out in CA., nice find.We made this large coffee table that is 36” wide and 64” long stands 18” tall and is a full 3” thick.
We added a few walnut butterflys into the top for additional beauty and stability for the couple of end checks.
Sanding this one was fun wouldn’t fit through the planer, so had to get out the hand planer to flatten the top,
We leveled two nice size cedar stumps to finish it off.
Wife applied 10 coats of minwax hand rubbed poly to the top and wow what a piece.

Ame out looking good.
but very heavy.

You have a gift! I looked at some of your other projects as well. Very Nice! What would you recommened on finishing thses slabs with? I plan on bulding a coffee table once I get down to meet Socalwood and wasnt sure what you use. How do you fasten the base to to the top as well.
Thx in advance, again great work!
