Made a coffee table for the wife, she seems pretty pleased. I planed it down with a router sled, then sanded it to 220. 2 part epoxy for the top finish.

Very beautiful. That is quite massive. What did you use for the legs?

1/4” thick bent steel. I didn’t have enough matching maple to do legs so I went with the rustic steel “U” 16” legs.

WOW that is a slab of wood there, definitely better to bring the tool to the wood, rather than try to carry that beast anywhere, plus who has tools big enough to handle that? Even if you did, you would need a forklift to bring it to the machine.

How did you move it? Appx weight?

Nice job, looks great. Thanks for posting.

we rolled it out of the truck at about 900-1000 lbs. used a crosscut saw to get 4 slabs out of the round. planed it down to 2 1/2”. I’d say it weighs about 80 lbs. I’ve had it drying for a couple years, not as heavy as it once was despite being 3’x4’ around. the only real power tool i used was a chainsaw a bit in the beginning and a router to plane it. Thanks :)
