I picked up a 2" thickX2'wideX60" long live edge slab of Ponderosa pine for free when buying some black walnut from a local supplier so I decided to try my hand with a waterfall table I had seen pictures for online and the end result wasn't too bad at all. I took 18" off one end at a 45-degree angle then made one more cut she was ready to rejoin itself. I used 1/2 inch dowels(3 sets of 3 spaced evenly apart) to help support the waterfall since it is the leg for that side I wanted it to be strong. Also, the bark is still on the live edge and it is finish nailed on, the supplier said the tree was taken in winter so that will help the bark to stay on. For the leg on the opposite end, I used pine which is painted to look like metal and is wrapped around the table and rabbeted into the top. Finally, I finished it with 5 coats of Minwax wipe on poly except for the bark on the live edge which recieved 5 coats of minwax fast drying spray on poly.
