    Why did you not use turquoise colored resin?

    No problems with wood movement concerning the legs? I have a nice slab of walnut that I’m still deciding on what to do with the legs, your idea is simple and looks very good! Love the table!

    I've had this piece of Maple for years, and been waiting for the right project. I turned the legs on the lathe, and attached them to the top with a mortise and tenon. I really enjoyed this woodworking project. I got to incorporate turning with some traditional woodworking. If you make something like this I'd really like to see it, you can always share your project on my website.

    Very nice live edge table.  I am currently doing a live edge end table going to inlay some leaves.  Hoping it turns out as nice as yours.

    That's a stunning piece of wood. I wouldn't fill it in; it looks like a piece of art, imho.

    This brought tears to my eyes.  I think I have some sort of wood DNA or something from distant ancestors.  I wanted to just run out of the house and go find some sort of hardwood and start sanding.  Great stuff.  Let us know when you're taking on mindless students to learn the art.

    Really nice. Not quite so sure on the turquoise though. Only 16 years in the planning, that must be a new record. Great work.

    On those two closest legs, I bet you'll want to go back and put a short apron in only to control any future cupping of the top. Sure is pretty.

    Great work!! That maple is stunning with all the character. I do live edge slab and stump furniture myself. I made a very similar coffee table out of a walnut slab except I didn't turn legs, I used other natural edge wood to create my legs, but the principle is similar. Its roughly same size, height and even had a hole in the middle identical to your slab. The hole is beautiful and all and really brings the "natural" aspect out but I wanted to make it more functional yet keep the beauty. I often go to garage sales and find glass tops all the time for cheap so I always pick any up I see as I use glass on some of my pieces. I found the perfect size piece one day and took it to my local glass cutter. I had him first cut it to relative size and then had him trace the glass perfectly to match the live edge. It came out awesome and you can still see the beauty of the natural hole. Now what made this possible is I found the original glass for like $8. Good solid 3/4 inch thick glass. This alone new would be around $100. It only cost me $60 for him to trace the glass to match the live edge. So in reality it only cost me under $70 for a $175 piece of glass. Just a thought. I love watching and reading about other people that do what I do because no matter how long you do it you can NEVER learn it all.

    What liquid did you use on turquoise sand on 3:30?

    Don't fill that void, it adds so much to this piece. It's like music, you don't want to fill every space with notes because that is noise, you need pauses and space.

    Beautiful Carl. Another thing you could have done to fill in those cracks, which I think would've added a little contrast, is to have filled them with some melted aluminum. Just my humble opinion.
