I want a high gloss finish. The piece has live edges on the sides and cuts at what was the trunk and the two main branches. I don’t have a picture handy, buy it is 99% solid, with only one small ( a few square inches) in the center that needs to be filled. I have cleaned the live edges and used a wire wheel on the cuts to produce what looks like a rough-sawn finish. I didn’t think that a clean, crisp cut on the ends would fit the natural, rustic feel I was hoping to achieve. I will try to post a picture of the slab tomorrow.
