This was my first slab table project and I did learn a few thing for future projects. First, I would die the epoxy black. Secondly, I would do the lacquer and wax hand buffing again. I am very pleased on the final finish. I think the most important thing with any wood working project is picking out the right piece of lumber.

Sean, I love these kinds of projects. I’m a table guy myself and anything in live edge looks great. The chairs are a nice match as well. welcome to LJ’s. So it’s hard to tell from the photos but it looks like maple.

Ya after I posted I read further that it is in fact maple. Nice slab, must have cost a pretty penny. O hell what am I saying you live in the land of hardwood. You sure cant find that kind of thing where I live.

Yeah, it’s maple. This area is a great source of maple, walnut and oak. Hickory which is one of my favorites woods is a little more scarce, but does come available once in a while. Thanks!

That first pic is crazy, at first it looked like the table was bowed in the middle. Took a while for me to see through the illusion. absolute beautiful table.

You certainly picked a good piece of lumber. Gorgeous! Being spalted, it is so very interesting to see. I’m sure everyone who sits to it is captivated by it. Really nice pattern for the chairs to compliment it, too. Nice project and very well done!!

That’s quite a beautiful dining table and definitely a conversation piece.
