Very nice. Sometimes live edge tables can seem a bit funky if the shape is all over the place, but the shape on those slabs is subtle, and the repeating profile gives it a great sense of unity.

I am a live edge guy. I love it. I am glad you left some of the sap wood. Too many forget mother nature put in her own color combinations.

That is very nice & clever

You have brought the natural plank

and the square uprights/legs together

A wonderful piece

I’m always suprised at your work. You are balancing nature and design. A goal of mine if I ever get past the paperwork and other obligations that take priority.

Until then I’m excited to share your journey.
