Modern Maple Live Edge Table

When a client wants the feel of a single slab table but likes the colors and grain that exist in a stack of 12-16” wide maple slabs you get creative. These slabs had a prominent color differentiation between the sap wood and heart wood so I cut the live edges along with all of the sap wood off each slab. I jointed and lightly planed each board, trying to leave some saw marks along the way. Once assembled I finished the table off with two coats of Odie’s Oil Original and then attached the steel legs.

Enjoy!

Thanks Pottz! I have to admit that my client was an interior designer so she had a good amount of input into the style of the legs based on the chairs she was going to use.

the 4 or 5 degree taper on the legs make all the difference – not that it needed any help lol

Looks great – I love the way you did the live edge on it!

I just ordered some metal legs with the same design for a table i’m doing and I just used Odies for the first time. Your finish came out much better than mine did

Thanks Dick! I agree, I like the slight taper. I make a similar style leg out of poplar for coffee tables and use a 10 deg taper.

Oh no! What went wrong with your finish? I’ve used it quite a bit and once I realized it takes 3 weeks to fully cure I haven’t had any issues. I’ve tried Osmo as well and it seems to be pretty easy to use.

Thanks Rob. I like mixing design aspects. Mixing the rustic live edge concepts with a modern/industrial base has been very popular.
