In this video, I’m showing you how I took a large live edge slice of a tree, also called a cookie, and turning it into a gorgeous coffee table. I experimented with filling the deep cracks, before finishing them and filling them with a dark epoxy.

  1. Some contrasting bowties in the large cracks would add even more visual interest. I would love to do one of these, but cookies that big are way out of my price range here in Canada. Shipping costs are somewhat prohibitive for something that size. Great look and great tips for filling large cracks.

  2. The coffee table turned out beautiful! Since you did the epoxy will the wood continue to split? The only thing I might have done differently, 😉 is put heavy duty rollers. 😂

  3. Looks good, the process may not have looked as professional or polished compared to many experienced pros videos on YouTube, but the end result was really nice & pleasing to look at.

    This is something an amateur like me can try at home with minimal tools in my garage.

  4. This reminds me of a coffee table that my late Dad made about 50 years ago. He got the slab from behind a second hand store for 50 cents and turned the legs on his wood lathe. My niece now has the table in her house.

  5. Must say your finishing on the coffee table looks awesome. I have two similar slabs (I think it is from a gum three🤔) that I use for bed side stands but I have filled the cracks with saw dust and super glue). Thank for yet another great video👍👌

  6. Missed the part where you flattened it before and after the epoxy. I have a 42" cookie of cottonwood with a 3" crack, been sitting for 5 years outside, trying to decide how I would use such a table.

  7. New to your channel and wondering how you came to leaning building. Also, seeing your shop and equipment I'm wondering what is your primary business? Keep up the good work!

  8. Sorry April but this was rather lack luster. I enjoy the vast majority of your projects. This just missed the the mark. You are great and I admire what you've done. Keep up the good work and don't let someone like me deter your efforts. Ron
