The mango and granite were salvaged from the same job site. The mango tree had been cut down and stuffed in a hole to make way for the electric hook up for the house. I was able to dig out a hand full of logs but unfortunately the main trunk was unreachable. The borer beetle started working on it before me but I milled the logs with an Alaskan Mill and dried them in my solar kiln. Ohia legs are from another tree that was cut and left to rot. I hid the metal braces with some wedges I thought it was a cool little touch.

You have built a great looking table with those logs! Glad I stopped to see your work! I almost pass it by because I didn’t understand the featured picture! But my curiosity got the best of me!
Good work!
