Monumental Coffee Table Hits the Mark

Now that you've seen what went into making this massive coffee table, here's the final result. 

Because of the size and severity of the check line along one side, the slab had to be stabilized from both sides. Because I didn't have to worry about aesthetics on the underside, I added a full complement of butterflies along the entire length, to add extra stability.

And here's the final result after finishing with polyurethane....

Hope you enjoyed hearing about the process of making this table. I think it turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself - but most of the credit goes to Mother Nature for the real star of the piece, the wood.
