This is a slab of Maple about 2” thick X 16” X 13”. It came from a tree on my property about 2 years ago. I cut the slab with my chainsaw, then used my router to level it up on both sides, following that with a sanding disc on a grinder, finishing up with sanderpaper, 50 grit, 80, 150, 220. The table top finish is Environtex Lite pour on High Gloss. I’ve sold this product at my store but had never used it personally. It was much easier to use than I expected and the finish is beautiful and appears to be pretty rugged. The table stand is 3/4”X4” Maple I fitted in a tri-shape, cut to resemble the shape of a tree trunk. I stained it to match the color of the remaining bark and top costed it with 2 coats of gloss polyurethane. Thanks to my LJ friend Wayne Dailey for advice he’s given me. Check out his projects; he does super work over in East Tennessee.
