Default Live Edge Side Table

I would not have called this that, but the maker did, so I'll go with it. Pretty neat, but I would prefer some sort of wood base.

I like the bow ties in the cracks but I would have made router templates to cut the bow ties and pockets. Theo I agree with you about making a wood base for it instead of the bend rod legs but that is personal taste.

For a piece like this, I am not sure if I would care for bowties or butterflys, or not. I'm thinking maybe a custom color epoxy. But, like you say, personal taste. But still sticking with a wood base, column, of some sort.

Yeh, I like the column idea, Theo. Maybe an acrylic tube?

Hair pin legs seem to be very popular....again. I thought they were ugly in the 60s. They're still ugly.

Not at that price. But, anyway, if I did go with acrylic, I would want it round, and a fish tank. I'm not sure exactly what style of column(s) I would want, except for sure would be wood. If I were to make one, I would likely make more than one, because I can get the top material for just gas money to pick them up. Thinking in that case, might try for a different style of column for each. Durn, I may just start doing furniture making.

They would maybe be OK for something like a run of the mill kitchen table, but that's about it. Agree, they're ugly.

Thumbs up for the wood base, Theo. Might as well have it on cinder blocks as iron rods.
