Live edge slabs are a natural product, and although we do everything in our power to make them stable and sound, sometimes the tension is just too much. This is a center cut slab, and the tension across the heart opened a already filled area after installation. Alan spent a few days doing a bit of filling, sanding and finishing in place. Wood moves, we just try to keep up. #woodmoves#woodworking#liveedgeslab#doingwork#buildbeautiful

Live Flow River Edge Resin Desk -
This one of a kind live flow river desk with resin river inlay is made of a beautiful wooden slab that would make a great addition to your home office.
For this custom order, the piece of slab used to create this desk came out of the customer's yard. The large void was filled with Turquoise resin for a accent. Video coming soon
Used an electric sander to clean up the edges on this live edge project. Then finished off by hand. The entire top had to be sanded by hand (since I don't own a belt sander, and the rotary sander leaves annoying scratch marks). For the full story check out my blog! Link in bio 😎

Once the live edge slabs are glued and leveled, the fun part begins 😎 removing the bark from the edges. I used a chisel first and then sanding.

I found these black walnut slabs at a bargain price on kijiji. I had them ripped on one side (ripped means cut) and professionally glued. I was going to do the glue up myself, but the cost of buying so many long specialty clasps was as much as having it done by a company. They even leveled it for me, so I didn't need to worry about it.
This stunning live edge dining table with resin river inlay is made of a beautiful wooden slab that would make a great kitchen or coffee table.
The piece of slab used to create this table is a rustic wood. The large void was filled with Turquoise resin for a accent. The coloring, figuring and patterning which you can see in this slab is definitely a conversation starter.
You will notice the amazing wood grain figuring which is mesmerizing within itself.
This live edge table is entirely handmade or handcrafted and is made from solid natural recycled wood.
First attempt at butterfly inlays. Learned some valuable lessons like routing out the inlay spot short and the actual butterfly inlay a bit bigger gives me some play to really make sure it fits in tightly with minimal gaps. Any gaps I did get I filled using a guerrilla wood glue sawdust mixture (not pictured) which really worked well. I sanded it to 320 to get an idea of how the top would feel finished then ran a damp cloth across it to bring up the grain and any scratches my initial sanding missed. Next is to do a dark epoxy pour to real ensure the split in the wood is secure (it runs all the way through), then re-sand with the belt and orbit up to 800 then apply a dark walnut to the inlays and a Tung Oil over the rest for the final finish. The base will be made of alder and will be built in the next few days as time permits 🇺🇸🦅

TRASH TO TREASURE. I turned a live edge cut off into a EPOXY CUTTING BOARD. Full build video, start to finish. This is a pin oak slab with nice spalting, but was a a tad punky. I was able to stabilize these sections using the epoxy. There are concerns about using epoxy in a cutting board, but with a few common sense measures this is safe to use. Never put hot foods directly into epoxy. I soaked the board in food grade mineral oil, and then built up a layer of beeswax. This helps keep the food from coming into direct contact with the epoxy. Oak usually isn’t the best wood for a cutting board due to the open grain structure, but this slab includes a lot of end grain. The full video is up on my YouTube channel. Link in bio. •
