Greetings, my first LJ forum post! :-)
My wife found a beautiful old live edge coffee table in the trash in Toronto this weekend and brought it home. It’s made of a single slab, 3-4 foot diameter, probably 5 inches thick. Very heavy! It’s got some clear finish (I assume poly or epoxy—not sure).
Somebody used it as a crafting table—there are bits of paint over the surface.
I can sand down the top surface of the table no problem to refinish it. But the live edge needs to be cleaned up, too. I worry about sanding it, that I’ll lose some of the live edge texture: should I be?
Does anybody have any experience with this?
Thanks lots! -Shawn.
