Hi,

This was a table I just built for my stepdaughters first adult solo apartment. The base wood cost more than the top. I was downhill mountain biking in Vermont and ended up having to go to the hospital for a few stitches in my leg. On the way, I passed by a house with slabs in front of his house with a “For Sale” sign. Weeeelll, on the way back
I picked up two.

They were about 5+1/2 foot tall, 2” thick and around 24” wide. He had the whole tree he cut down last year!

I’m getting a few more next week when I go back for biking!

I cut a curve and bevel on each end and scraped off the bark. The finish is 10 coats of wipe on poly.

The height is for chairs that are kitchen island height. If she ever moves, it can always have the legs cut for a coffee table.

The legs are 2+1/2 inch Fir. Corner blocks to handle the weight. I added the shelf and made the ends like the top.

It’s a cool beefy table. Cost of the top= $40.00. No joke

Now how on earth are you going to carry the rest of the slabs you purchase downhill on your bike? :) Nicely done, I like this table a lot!

Nice work, the top really looks good. Carrying the board while biking, interesting but I will pass on the experience.

LOL
