First step was cutting the tree up to get it off the driveway.
Live Edge Table
My wife has been requesting this one for a while, so when the neighbor had a tree fall across their driveway, I finally made that table for the wife😉
I cut one 6’ chunk then cut it down the middle so I’d have a piece to work with.
Once I got it home, I did my best to cut a straight chunk out of it!
I used chisels and a straight draw to get debark the slab. Next, I cleaned up the slab.
I took a dewalt hand planer to both sides until it was level and then I sanded it to 120. All clean and ready to go!
I then applied a few coats of poly to give it a real nice shine. I then attached some hair pin legs.
And it was ready! This piece of wood was wet and will move as it dries but since it’s just for us, I’m ok with that🤗 Happy wife, and it looks awesome! Hope you like it!
