Ice storm cherry wood coffee table

Description

This is a live edge cherry wood slab coffee table that I made by joining two slabs on edge from our cherry tree that was killed in the ice storm of 2013
I joined the slabs and filled some of the imperfections with eco-poxy, which is non-toxic and wonderful to work with.
The base is unfinished steel tubing that is simply attached to the bottom of the wood top.
I chose a non-toxic finish that is rubbed into the wood that gives it an incredible lustre and really brings out the grain.
I wanted to contrast the smoothness and finish of the top with the rawness of the chainsaw marks on the short edges of the table. I also wanted to make sure that both pieces could be seen as individuals joined together
