Pecan table wip

Working towards building a table out of pecan I just cut the slabs. Planning a live edge 7-8’ long first step done slabs cut. I have to let the slabs dry out I have sprayed them with timbor and I had an end grain sealer but I have misplaced it I may use paint I don’t know if that will work or not. I haven’t decide what to use for legs may cut some 4x4 pieces from the pecan I have left or use something else.

ak,

You might consider hairpin legs. I've used them with great results. The rods on the 3 rod hairpin legs are 1/2" diameter and can support lots of weight. They are also reasonably priced.

I use whatever leftover paint I have laying around. The legs are only limited by your imagination. Good luck and keep us updated!

Great looking start. I nearly cry when I think of all the beautiful wood that was ground to chips after Harvey!
