Ok so im pretty new here. Nevertheless I decided to post few of my works here.
I made this table from single thick slab of Elm and blaze birch.
I always wanted to make a table with natural edges and now i had the chance to do that, allthough i had only 10 hours to make it :)
To prevent thick elm from twisting i routed walnut reinforcements at the ends.
Fininshin is made with glaze oil and beeswax.
I signed the table with round ebony plug as i usually do with my works.

Sry about the quality – photos taken with phone cam

I do like to see natural edges incorporated where appropriate. And yes, I like the walnut ends.
