I love the contrast of stone and wood, this was an experiment using some basic bridle joints. You can see the maple strip in the center actually is bridle jointed around the concrete slab.

very cool. I bet it weighs a ton. Is there any issue with moisture leaching out of the concrete?

Very beautiful table. What I like most about it is the “mass” it seems to have. The two materials work well together.

bibb – It weighs well over 100 lbs. which I kinda love b/c it doesn’t occupy all that much space. I made the concrete slab about a month before I had the top ready to go… With this table inside, I haven’t seen any leaching, nor do I expect to. Also the concrete was sealed before they came together, which made assembly easy and gave me some peace of mind.

I think I like this more than the cant table! Very clean and simple lines, complimented REALLY well by the interesting heart/sap wood transition and the maple strip!
I can see the bridle joint of the maple to the concrete, but there has to be something else that spans the width of the table, right? How did you pull that off? Very clean execution, by the way—I can’t see anything at all from the side view.

bryson, You’re right! the center maple strip actually somewhat mirrors the foot in that it descends as it moves toward the concrete, giving the bridle joint plenty of area to support the heavy top! I might have a photo of the table perfectly from the side for you to see… I’ll post it if I find it.

Another fantastic table, beautiful wood combo with different design but really looks great.

Gotcha—that side view looks great! So are the two planks floating with respect to the concrete, joined only to the maple?
Sorry for all the questions!

bryson, Yeah they are joined to the maple strip and not the concrete. Questions are great!
Thanks for the compliments all!
