Table or stand, I tend to stand alot and this works great for me. I used mesquite wood which I harvested and milled. A went though a few coats of urethane finish, three. Burls and curly grains, me likey :) Brushed on epoxy on the live edge. Crushed coral from my aquarium and blue sand from Hobby Lobby for fillers. Thanks for looking.

Your design showcases some beautiful mesquite! Never thought to brush epoxy on live edges. Thanks for that.

Thanks friends!

WaterMark, I used 2.5” deck screws along the bottom and with 1.25” blanks to hold the top to the vertical slab.
