This liveedge slab was in such a bad shape, that required more than just a little tlc. To begin, lumber was slighty damaged and with some cracks and voids. I used epoxy to fill most of it. Since, the shape of wood was so unique, I decide to make it one of a kind by having only 3 legs. Used Ash instead of walnut as one of the legs with hopes of keeping thing interesting. This decision seemed like the worst one. But, you be the judge.

Then, I wanted to make the best use of the gap in the wood. Routed the bottom a bit and installed a stainless steel wire mesh as support. This allows for any small decorative pieces or items to be placed and displayed. Hopefully, all this effort is visible and noticeable as a finished piece. Btw, I used Maloof poly/oil finish on this piece from rockler for this project.

I know stability is bit of an issue at certain spot on this table. Other wise, liked the outcome, expect for the usage of Ash. Critical thoughts welcome.

Thanks.

Very nice table. I kind of like the contrast of the ash leg. Stability is important but for a decorative side table I would say you should be just fine.

Thank you pottz and timberashdesigns for the feedback. After keeping an eye on this for few days, I think I will try to stain the ash legs when time permits.

Hi,

That’s not a table ….it’s a work of art!

I love the use of the imperfections.

Thanks for the nice word. Though I thought of it the same manner, I guess the taste of most people is different. O
