Mesquite top, walnut legs, turquoise to fill knot holes and cracks.
Table measures 45” x 20”
A large mesquite slab was cut in half and the live edges turned in.
A paper pattern was made for the glass guys. After the glass was cut, channels were cut for the glass to set in. A 1/2” top bearing router bit was used.
The walnut legs were assembled with pocket screws and bolted through elongated holes to allow for movement. Though, I don’t expect the mesquite to move since it was made in AZ and, will stay in AZ.

great work my friend

i’ve never been a fan of the ‘live edges’ out

this is a very nice way to exhibit them
in a more formal way

almost spring now
enjoy

Thanks guys.
Mark, it’s not as heavy as you might think. There’s that big hole in the middle. :-)

Very cool! Using the glass along with the turquoise was a great idea, looks beautiful.

This is one of the nicest “river tables” I’ve seen posted here.

Great job. It really is a beautiful piece.
