I made this table for my gf at the time (now my wife) and wanted to use a solid log support. I had a spruce log and rough carved it with a chainsaw. I put a Red Cedar slab on the bottom for a decorative touch and extra support. The top is 3 pieces of scrap Cherry I milled that were mineral oiled and poly’ed. I purposely left the horizontal marks from the milling process to add some character to the pieces. I filled the cracks between them with wood filler since the bends/warps didn’t all them to fit perfectly flush together. It’s another piece of unusual, unprofessional furniture but I love it and it serves a great purpose!

I enjoy your enthusiasm! Rustic furniture doesn’t appeal to everyone but I love it and your table is very unique and very rustic. I think I like the wood filler on the top, it is reminiscent of a log cabin I think :)
