Working on a 150 yr old Redwood Burl top coffee table with a Myrtle live edge base, with a Myrtle crotch stump. Sealer coats are on and gap on top is partially filled with black tinted epoxy. Now i am adding small river rock and will do final fill with clear epoxy. Also going to do another coat of amber shellac to darken base top
a bit to match Redwood top a bit more. Need to do sealer coat in base stump yet and do final finish with top coat.

Looking good so far. How did you fasten the top and bottom the the upright part?

Nice looking table Gary. The offset between the top and base made me think of the coastal cypress trees that are always leaning one way or another.

Well i am down to spraying finish on this table. Long hole filled with black tinted west sytem epoxy and then small colored rocks added and final pour done in clear system west epoxy. Top is still wet and finish is laying down still. I will let dry for a few days and sand & buff out.

Was the hole that you filled naturally occurring or a result of some part of processing?

Twofeathers: It was in the wood when i got it and i think it is a chainsaw cut from loggers. The slab is thought to be 150 yrs according to family members. There were 2 of them and one i already made a coffee table of .
