Very nice! I’ve never done live edge furniture before, but I was in a sawmill today looking at some very interesting pieces of wood. May be something to do in the future. Thanks for the post.

I used 3 thin coats of Spar Urethane on everything but the top—the top is tung oil.

That is a beautiful piece. It has a lot of character. You could have put a patch on the knot to remove the “defect” but instead it adds detail to the table.

Great bench. I’ve got a walnut slab table that I need to put some butterflies in. My son had used an electric screwdriver to mess with the cracks.

I priced some of those large cuts of wood. Oh what I could do with a couple of acres of trees.Really nice job

I have a few large surplus slabs. I dont give them away, but I also dont charge near as much as most others. Shipping over 6’ is a little high. email if interested.
