This is a table I made for my son, He saw the slab and said “Wow, that would be a great table.” So one month later this is what “occurred” I had to try a different leg configuration but it seemed to come out OK.

The wood is camphor, The finish is tung oil. I really enjoyed this project. I never tried anything like this before. I had to glue the bark on so it would not peel off and the split was growing so I had to stabilize it with the butterflies. It turned out alot better than I had hoped. Like everything else I have done it was kind of off the cuff, trial and error.

What a beautiful table. You did a very nice job. What wood did you use on the butterflies and legs?

I once made a live-edge side table out of camphor. Amazing slab of wood. It looked like an exploding super nova. Not only did I have a beautiful one-of-a-kind, my sinuses were clear for a year. Great job, John. Thanks for sharing.
