I found a long cherry board with one live-edge from my local sawmill this summer.
Looks like nobody wants it because it’s one long and slim with some mineral streaks.
I was looking for a live-edged board for a long time but couldn’t find a good and cheap one
except this(paid $15 but I know it’s not a wise way of spending precisou time). And also
it wasn’t easy to find a way to reform this so spent quite some time to think about what to do.
Finally shaped coffee table.
The board was long and slim, so I cut it in half and joined it.
I’m not a big fan of stain but this board has greenish mineral streaks, so I used General Finish’s
dye stain to hide it. The color looks good to me though it’s not natural.
Legs are maple, finish is water-based satin polyurathane 6 times. Maybe more.
