I made this cedar slab coffee table for my wife for Mother’s Day. I love the color, i finished it with that pore on epoxy. I left the live edges on both sides, 5’ long X 17” to 20” wide X 20” tall.

A beautiful job! That pour on epoxy always looks great with red cedar and should offer a lot of protection for this relatively soft wood.

The table top looks great, I’ve always liked the glossy slab table look. What is the pour on epoxy that you used here and how thick of a finish did you end up with? Thanks

I sure enjoy this website, love the lawn tractor in the photo. To me it shows real people. Thanks to everyone.
