This is my attempt at a live edge table. The table is 49” long,16” wide and 33 1/2 ” tall. The base is made of Redwood and the top is pine. All surfaces are hand planed but the top. I left the top with the saw marks on it. I did sand it to give it a smooth touch. Let me know what you think.

The table turned out very nice. I haven’t worked with pine too much, but I have never seen it with 2 different tones, that really is an eye catcher.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice work! The saw marks really accentuate the rusticness of the top. The continuous grain drawers with the knots are a nice touch as well. What finish did you use?

I used a dark walnut stain with a wipe on top.

The live edge works for this piece. Curious that you got such a big slab of pine like that. I don’t think I have ever seen that but then I live in an area that has to import stuff because we don’t have trees here. Great job.

The slab was actually 12’ long and came from a city street in Missoula MT. The company I got the lumber from sort of rescues lumber that would have been burned or sent to the land fill. (Bad Goat Wood Products).

We have lots of pine in Montana. This slab was not the largest they had, some were 6” thick and 12’ long. The one I have on the table is about 2.5” thick after hand planing the bottom flat. I didn’t want to go any thicker than that, it would have looked very top heavy.

Thanks for the compliment.
