Got several pies from a very old elm tree that I will be making into tables for fun. The pie is Elm and the base is Hickory that I got from a pile of throwaways from a lumber mill.
The pie is actually a branch from a 150+ tree. There are 70 growth rings in each side.
It was cut down in 2012 and it’s fun to count backwards to see how big the branch was when I was born.
The 2 pieces are put together with a floating tenon.
I experimented with different filers for the cracks just for fun as buying a two part epoxy is not in my budget.
Finished with a natural stain and several coats of poly.
