This side table was the culmination of a fair amount of wood milling. The result was some very unique wood patterns that really add a lot of detail to the piece. I was quite pleased with how both the wood and the concrete turned out. I cut down the oak from an old Savannah homestead – the owner was adding a garage. The concrete is made from white cement with a tan sand and has a design strength of 8000psi. The top is 1.5″ thick with the embedded arrows. The entire top has a 1/8″ high gloss epoxy finish that is heat resistant. I gave it to my parents.
