This is a coffee table I have just completed for a special customer made out of a salvaged Jarrah slab I found just laying out in the sun and rain at a local salvage yard, at first it seemed that it was beyond help and destined for fire wood but I am glad I decided to persevere with rescuing this beautiful piece of wood.

The base made out of 50×10mm mild steel and is MIG welded together, then painted using a 2 pack epoxy paint.

Amazing piece of salvaged wood there. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Great job on this piece.

Very nice looking table,and what a save on the slab of Jarrah! I have always liked furniture pieces that combine with wood metal, in fact I am finishing up a coffee table using reclaimed barnwood and metal framing as well (posting soon)! Hope mine turns out as nicely as yours, anyways thanks for sharing and hope to see more!

great looking table. The two tier design is very interesting. You have designed it to get the most out of the live edges. I like the small step into top tier in picture two. Was that also a live edge that you routed and smoothed out or did you create that tier?

That has got to be one of the nicest looking pieces of wood I’ve ever seen. And the resulting table is no slouch either. I really like this. A lot. Beautiful!

Beautiful !! I love the contrast of the hard angles of the steel, with the warmth and live edge of the wood. Great work.

Thanks everyone,

Woodbridge, I created the tier as a bit of a creative element as there was a few low spot in the slab but I didn’t want to take away too much width as I liked the sun dammage being visible so i decided to rout/sculpt those areas down.

Great piece mate! Like the 2 tier design its a good way to make use of narrow live edge boards. Yes the Jarrah is gorgeous. I thought the different thicknesses on the top must have been from someone trying to free hand mill with a chainsaw.
