I had this slab brought to me by my horse vet asking if I could make it into a table top. I milled it flat on my router table then put the shoes in to stop the cracking and left the bark on to see how long it stayed. I finished it with salad bowl finish.She will have wrought iron legs made for it.

Great idea for used shoes I’ll have to make one for the wife…

I think if you would have covered it with the epoxy 30 coats at once finish stuff, (can’t remember the name, sorry), you have a better chance of keeping the bark on. Still, very unique use of horseshoes, very unique tabletop, and kudos to you for excellence!

Great table top. The horseshoes set it off! I’m impressed. Don’t worry about the bark. It will stay on, or it’s easy to epoxy back when it does fall off.
