Bought a raw slab 15 years ago in Humbolt on the way back from a road trip in CA. It sat in the attic until last year. Made the base from an old lawn table.

Stunning. Great design and re-use of the old lawn table. Nice work.

well I love the redwood wood slab but the old patio table should be left in the back yard.or put out for the recyclers!you could do more justice to that beautiful redwood,they don’t work well together!just my honest opinion.

I agree. I just had never welded anything before so it was practice. Then it became a Redwood xBox table, much to my chagrin. I’ll eventually get around to changing them out. Any suggestions?

This table is a real beauty and the base is also nice. That slab is wonderful and what an eye catcher.

well a lot of the ones ive seen they used tree limbs or trunks.ive done a few and have gone the more contemporary route,kind of a rustic refined look.i have seen some done with metal legs that looked great but being a wood guy I stay with that.

great looking table… the metal base goes with it very well.

Filled cracks with Total Boat brand epoxy. Sanded then 6 or 7 coats of Deft rattle can spray then buffed and waxed with automotive products.

I have had a similar table (Red Wood Base) for 40 years in my living room. Always loved that table so much.
