I had an order for a live edge coffee table for a customer in Iowa. I hope he likes it. Just put the clear liquid glass finish on it today, so now it has to cure for three days.

That is nice! Beautiful wood. Is that the pour on/self leveling finish?

Okay we have had a few questions so now it’s time for answers. The legs are from one piece cut up in quarters, it cam out good I think. I call it clear glass, but it is an epoxy, like I said I call it that because it looks like glass when cured. Yes it’s also self leveling pore on epoxy & I posted a picture of the stuff I use for it. I was able to find it at Lowe’s & Ace hardware store. I hope this was helpful to every one & thanks for the kind words.
