Here is a table that started out as a lesson in joinery. My plan was to cut up the table and throw it in the trash when complete.
It is made from madrone which is very hard and splits easily. I filled the splits with epoxy and sanded them smooth. I decided to make the top with the live edge boards to kinda combine the new style look of the legs and floating style top with a rustic look. It is all mortise and tenon joinery and I finished it with amber shellac.
The wife likes it so much I have to build another and a coffe table to match.
