Custom Hickory Live Edge Table Top 12X 40 – 48”X1.75”
Made from 3 pieces joined together. 21 Hand cut Walnut butterflys, Spar urethane finish. Joined with #20 biscuts, but I wanted added integrity, so I put a 1”X 6” long dowel going 3” in to each slab at each end. Top only. Customer is supplying their own legs. These pics dont do it justice. You really have to try to pick it up to really get a feel for it!
I buy my logs from an Amish log yard, then mill the logs & dry the slabs before creating all kinds of pieces of this type. More can be seen in my ebay store or at my website. & Thanks, Ted.

That is a pretty sweet table top, but tagging it with chair would mean you use it as a chair?
