This is a pine slab I kept when the utility company cut some trees on my property a couple years ago. This one was clear and the growth rings showed up nicely. It is well balanced and sits well on the tri-leg which is of Maple which I made a couple years ago for the Maple slab table. The color was wrong for the Maple slab, but I liked the contrast of colors when paired with the Pine, dyed green. The leg unit is mortised and glued into the table top as I tried to show in picture 4. Pictures 5 and 6 show more detail of the leg unit. Being end grain, the Pine took the dye darker than I would have ideally wished for, but the color still shows up very well. I top coated with two applications of Clear Epoxy. The slab top is roughly 17” in diameter and about 3.75” thick. The height of the table is 29”. I’ve gotten my inspiration for these from my LJ buddy Wayne Dailey,http://lumberjocks.com/aldee from Kingsport, Tennessee.
