This is a large slab coffee table that I made as a gift for Mother’s day. It is about 18 inches tall, 5 feet long and about 30 inches wide, on average. It is figured throughout with what looks to be curly, quilted and spalting. There also looks to be a small burl that was developing on the side of the table.
I used a biscuit joiner to add strength to the miter joints and also added a black walnut bow tie to support a crack one of the legs. This was my first time making anything from a natural edge slab. It is finished with boiled linseed oil and wax. I am thinking of removing the wax to add a finish with a higher gloss, since I think it would showcase the figure better than its current satin-like finish.
