This is a solid maple, live edge log/slab table/bench/table. The table is about 3.5 feet long, appx 18-22” wide 2.5 inches thick. Appx 18 inches high. The legs are through tenons through the top. Finish is Minwax Spar Poly. The grain on the top and especially the live edge is pretty nice. The fourth photo is the raw slab at the beginning. :)

That’s nice, I really like this “raw” look. Never done any live edge stuff myself though, maybe I should…

Rivergirl, that’s a real beauty there. You’ve done a fine job on that table.

DBnR- it’s fun and not too tough if you have the tenon cutter. Give it a whirl sometime. Just go cut a few 1-2-3 inch saplings, dip both ends in paint and let them dry in the garage/barn. When you’re ready the wood will be ready. :)

LOVE IT! -i like the way the legs/tenons go all the way through the surface. It makes the top have even more color.
