Live edge slab Waterfall coffee table
This is a waterfall table made from a slab cut from tree in my yard and air dried. The wood is oak with live edge and some spalting on leg area. It is about 2” thick. Due to the live edge I had to do some hand tool work to match mitered edges. Angle cuts were done with track saw and secured with dominos and TB III glue. The natural crack in the wood was celebrated and accented with three bow ties on top and mirrored in location on bottom. Top bow ties are walnut and bottom ones are made from cut off pieces from sam slab. The table was then Clamped glued and dried. Finish is 5 coats of Arm-r-seal sanded between with 800 grit. Hair pin legs were attached and it’s a showpiece. #waterfalltable
First angle cut
Ready for dominos
Dry fit pretty nice 👍
A little shaving off the edge to match live edges with sharp chisel
Nice day to sand outside. Always wear dust protection.
First time using Arm-r-seal and loved it but you do have to know to just whip on one direction and leave it alone.
Dry fit again and ready for glue up
The grain is just amazing. Oak is under rated in my POV
Used scraper for those squirrelly spots of grain in multi direction
Finished product came out nice
