Thanks to my new best friends at NJ Wood Forever I got these gorgeous book matched slabs of Walnut (also 2 slabs of Cherry in the picture) I used StoneCoat Casting epoxy for the rivers tinted with Black Pearl pigment and StoneCoat counter top epoxy for the top coat. I didn’t have time to weld and paint my own legs so I custom ordered these counter height legs from psteelcrafts on Etsy for a reasonable price. If you’re anywhere NEAR New Jersey go to NJ Wood Forever! Located at the New Egypt Flea Market, Cream Ridge New Jersey And check them out on Facebook NJ wood Forever, They’re just a small business with a sawmill so they don’t ship slabs. I searched online for similar 8 foot book matched slabs and the cheapest i found them was $1,800….. For these I paid….. Wait for it…... $250 for the pair… YES $250!!!!!!!!

Thanks, Besides being a Master Carpenter, I have gotten resins pretty much down to a science. Believe it or not that project only took me about 20 man hours..

Already said I loved the top in the other thread, but couldn’t see the legs. For me I don’t like the stark industrial look of the metal legs against the warmth that wood offers, but if you had a base like your painted white one under this top, that would be winner winner chikun dinner.

But I can appreciate the work, and do realize not everyone likes what I like. Thanks for posting.

Great looking table and a FANTASTIC score on that walnut.

Walnut is a quite common tree here and the price would still be 4X what you paid!
