This slab was brought to me to finish into a table. i wasn’t to keen on the project because I sell slabs and would rather have sold one for the project. But…such is life.
This slab had some obvious drawbacks. First, a big crack. I had to put in a butterfly key to deal with that one. Second, there were two sections of the slab joined together by a 5” wide piece between the two. This is very weak. So, I sunk a piece of steel across the bottom to add strength. It would have been easier, and less expensive to buy a better slab from the get go. Lastly, I don’t care for the straight end opposite the circular end. Doesn’t work for me.
It wasn’t until I began to apply my finish that I began to have a bit of a change in attitude. The colors in this piece were lovely. This piece had curl, quilting, flecks of orange and gold. It was really nice.
The slab was raised up on stainless steel pins for a minimalistic look.
