First attempt at a mitered slab. I had the whole tree milled 8/4 through and through and this top slab had more live edge than solid material. Think I found a good use for the slab. Left band mill marks for added character. Made mitre cuts with a festool ts75 wow it that tool useful.

I’m curious as to whether you strengthened the miter joints as well. Very cool bench by the way!

I’m doing something similar for a “friend” out ash and walnut right now.

I put friend in quotes because I will probably feel differently about our relationship after this bear is complete.

That is one beautiful and solid bench! Love the live edge. This will last for many years. Great work!

Beautiful job on the whole thing and the miters in particular.

This is a sweet table!
