I added two more legs to this table. It is much more appropriate and stable this way and I thank L/J members for their sugeestions. This is a slab and log live edge table. it needs one more coat of spar poly. I did add some epoxy to the knots. he pictures really make this table look awful- but in real life the defects and grain really look pretty cool. I used wedged through tenons for the legs through the table top. I wish I could learn how to take better pictures… :0 I still have no idea what kind of wood this is? Could be maple, could be white oak? The bark is really thick and rough, and it was a bear to drill through for the mortises. The legs are attached to the top with wedged through tenons. Legs are attached to each other with blind tenons.
