This is a mission style end table of my own design to match a similar coffee table that I built previously. The legs are assembled with through tenons and reinforced with blackwood pegs. Each end panel has a scrollsawn scene to add some extra detail.
The top is made from slate tiles that are mounted, grouted and sealed like a real slate floor. My hometown was a huge slate mining community back in the day and I liked adding a part of it in the table. The textured stone also gives the the piece a bit more of a rustic feel.

That has the “Wow” factor

The design gives so much to the grain of the wood

Rustic! Yes but in a nice way.

I Like it, it looks real good, nicely done.

Nice table. I really like the scrolled slat, too.
I have a nice slab of marble and now I know what to do with it.

I agree w/Jamie…Wow. We are saying” wish I built that.” Did your develop the scroll saw pattern?
