Three slices of mother nature. I used 8-9” bolts and 2.5” deck screws to hold it together, no glue. Clear brushed on marine epoxy on the edges and a few coats or gloss urethane on the exposed wood. Crushed coral for the crevasses. Heavy, solid, feels nice! Customer request but kinda hurt to let it go.

Beautiful piece. I bet it was real heavy.

Very interesting piece! I like the natural edges, no hard angles that deflect the organic theme.

Beautiful table!

Wish I was closer to mesquite country as it is one of my favorite woods to work with.
