Live Edge Cherry Wood Table

Postby kaizoku0506 » Wed Aug 17, 2016 2:44 pm

I got ahold of a beautiful slab of live-edge cherry a few weeks back. The piece is 5' x 2' x 2.25". Ideally, I'd like to resaw it into two bookmatched pieces that I can join to make a trestle kitchen table. The hard part here is finding a band saw large enough. One option would be to cut it into ~8" segments first, resaw each segment, and then reassemble (might be less prone to warping too).

Alternatively, I may skip resawing it and turn it into a coffee table instead.

Either way, I want to do a trestle base like this:http://www.fogelvik.com/Images/Dining%20tables/wedge.jpg
Or this for a coffee table:

Here's the slab itself: http://www.makersathome.com/blog/2016/8/17/new-cherry-slab
