I made this using a salvaged scrap of walnut round-back slab. Not a lot of fancy grain figure but the nature of the slab is pretty cool I think.
I made a book-match mitered box in oak to look like a log for the pedestle and used oak for the angled leg brace.
Didnt take long to clean up the underside but its very rustic so I used clear high build epoxy flinish to flow over the bark and lock it in. The top and legs are finished in my own Maloof-style oil finish.

You can find this piece on too, id like to sell it, i bet im not the only one with too much of his own furniture!

pretty cool looking, but i would defenitely fret everytime somebody went near that thin edge. The bottom is pretty cool with the “L”.

That looks pretty cool ! Does it have a cabinet? I assume the leg was built with a cabinet.

I like it! Most folks discard that first cut off the log and you turned yours into a nice piece of furniture. What are the dimensions, please?

The inclusion of the thin edge on the top lends so much interest and uniqueness, compared to most other slab-top tables. I’m also curious if the base has any storage space?

Thanks guys! its about 15” high, the base is 8-1/2” square, its a hollow mitered box but I didnt build it for storage…definitly a cool idea for next time man!
I coated the underside in epoxy finish to lock in the bark and reinforce the thin sliver off the side. The rest is finished with wipe on poly, I backed it down with steel wool and waxed it for a nice semi gleam

Nice table.End tables are not only wonderful accent pieces that can really serve to finish up a room nicely, but they are also very functional objects that will serve an obvious purpose.End-tables are an ideal choice as they have myriad uses in addition to being visually appealing.
