Live edge table for a good cause
« on: August 12, 2017, 07:34:56 am »
Here are some photos of the live edge table that was just finished.

Last year I had the privilege of starting a project with R-CI Builders which was building a house for Homes for our troops whose recipient was JP McGuire.

I harvested all of the logs from the property and intended on making a live edge table for them once the house was completed.

This table came from on 10' log from a tree standing on the property when we began construction. It was sawn in April, aired dried for a while and then into the kiln.

This was a great project and I was honored to be part of it....Enjoy
