Hi A.T. I am really beginning to like the live edge look. It gives the piece a unique design element. I posted a comment on this to an earlier post but I was wondering about the stability of the bark edge. Do you have to do anything to stabilize it?

What kind of finishing process did you use on this piece?

By the way thanks for the construction picture of the inlay as well.

A very complicated inlay worked out so nicely. Are the inlay pieces readily available or you make them? Can u show me a site where I can know how inlay is done?

Thanks Guys,, Glad you like the live edge Scott, If you look closely you will see the bark is actually stripped off leaving the dark under bark. Its ver hard to leave the actual bark on the slab, because as the slab dries, the bark naturally looses it grip. even if you manage to get a piece finished with the bark on,, as soon as some one
leans on it or bumps it, it will fall off. so I usually just take it off up front.

Besides, the bugs and worms under the bark leave awesome designes in the wood edge.

the finish is a poared 2 part epoxy, a bartop finish …

Sharad, I will be posting a blog shortly on my entire style of enlay,, please stay tuned.

That is an incredibly beautiful piece. I am anxious to see you blog on how you accomplish your beautiful inlays. I had to go back and look at the picture after you told Scott about removing the bark – it did look like it was still attached. Looks great. Thanks for posting.
