Completed two riverstone tables, using local beach stones and local claro black walnut and black acacia slabs. Folks really like the design, and they are fun to make. I’ve probably made 10 or more of these tables over the years. The last pic shows the underside detail, with keys custom shaped to support the rivers stones, and hold the two halves of the slab together

Those look fantastic. I like the rocks embedded in the fluid wood.

Very nicely designed and executed! I can see this as a classic piece that would be admired for many years to come. I like the modern, organic details and the wood shows off quite well without being overwhelmed by the rocks and “river”.
