Slab C – of our collection of 375 Year Old White Oak. Now a coffee table, simple four leg base with one drawer. An assortment of oak butterflies are strategically placed to secure various cracks. Placement is both on the top and bottom of the slab. We’re a bit paranoid so – overkill is generally the game plan.
The legs are by Osborne Wood Products. This is another great example of where we could turn them ourselves but “why?” ... their cost per leg is so reasonable it’s really the best option to select until you really need something entirely one-of-a-kind.
We soaked the whole slab in epoxy to restore what arrived as rather soft “punky” wood. The final finish is Waterlox tung oil.
There are eight of these slabs, so more projects will follow!
