As you know, we ship to the apartment a new one recently and I’ve been itching to make a new coffee table for a place that can double as a place to eat well. (studio, for win)! So, after finding a great funky slab at a local wood dealer I knew I just had to turn it into a live edge coffee table, ASAP. If you’ve been here for a while then you already know what a drink I am for live projects, especially when they’re dancing with character. This was a project that took me a few weeks to create, but all the TLC was worth it! Even cooler, it will probably last us a lifetime and a half thanks to my friends at rust-oleum!
I have good news and bad news about this project. The good news is that the table is turned out AH-mazing. The bad news is that even though I made it for our new house, my mom loved it so much that she stole it.
I love real funky live edge slabs of wood…and I totally got it when I stumbled upon a local wood dealer (1 Of A Kind Live Edge Slabs) and their collection of wood cookies. I’ve been wanting to create my own version of a funky round table for a long time, and this was the perfect opportunity to do it. Here’s how I made it happen!

1. The first thing I had to do was flatten the slab. This can be done many different ways, but for this particular slab, I used a combination of sander and router with a sled (I used my friend Brandon’s tutorial to make my sled)!
2. I have a lot of voids and holes that go all the way through my slab that I want to keep. So, to do this, I taped on the underside of the slab (to stop the epoxy resin from seeping through) and then mixed a small layer of Varathane Super Glaze in Aged Brown.
This thing rocks! The pigment is pre-mixed into the resin, so you get the exact color every time! It’s also a 1:1 ratio which means I just have to mix equal parts of resin and accelerator and just mix them together by hand!

3. After the epoxy took care, I did one more round of polishing and sanding and I also took some time here to clean up the live edge.
4. My bar has a pretty big crack in it, so I decided to add some decorative wooden neck ties to prevent the crack from spreading even more. I used a router and a bow tie template for this and it made such a big difference (you can see this in action on the YouTube video)!
5. After installing the neck ties, I gave the slab a final sanding to 220 grit and then it was time to finish! I mixed another layer of Varathane Super Glaze in Aged Brown and poured it over the entire slab (the color is

I was definitely a little thirsty, so I obviously added a second coat and it dried beautifully!
6. After the panels are finished, all that’s left is to add some beautiful coffee tables (these were designed by my friend Chris at Four Eyes Furniture)!
I am very happy with the way this table turned out! I think it looks awesome. The color, the shape, the finish… it’s perfect! When I go “home” for a visit, I actually go home to the same house I grew up in.
Acacia Honey Live Edge Wood Coffee Table With Black U Shaped Legs
Anyone else sleep in their old room when they go home? Thankfully, all my old posts are gone because there are some things I don’t want to explain to my children.
When I was growing up one of the “design features” of our house was a 5-foot long slab of unfinished black walnut that sat on top of a half wall. I’m not even sure if you’ve secured a sheet of wood to that half wall, but it looks like it
Counter of sorts. I had the lucky job of dusting all the nooks and crannies of the flat edge. The youthful eye roll I throw in while I do this job is just a bonus.

I didn’t know until this week that the wood slab has a neat story. It was given to my parents by my Uncle Mervin. He worked in the logging industry, but also competed in lumberjack sports in the 1960s. Yes, lumberjack sports are a real thing. If you haven’t heard of this animation, watch this YouTube video of one of my other cousins, Mel Lentz.
About 12 years ago my father renovated the house. The half wall was removed and the beautiful wood that I had spent all my childhood dusting went into storage.
When I came home this last time for a visit, I walked into the living room and was greeted by this beauty: a DIY coffee table from that slab of wood.
China Solid Wood Coffee Table Live Edge Side Table
That wooden bar was such a fixture in my childhood that I never stopped to think about how to recreate it.
My wife (aka The Junk Whisperer) had a vision for using a slab of wood as a coffee table that was absolutely perfect.
The table legs are DIYed from 1.5-inch black steel pipe. This type of black pipe can be found at any home improvement store, but they come from a hardware store.
Natural Black Walnut Live Edge Coffee Table
If you buy this type of pipe, you will notice that it is covered in some kind of oil film. If you want to fill it, you will need to wash the pipe first to remove the oil. Be sure to prime or use a spray paint that has a primer in it. Otherwise, the color will not adhere well.
The bar has been sanded over the years, but it took a touch of sanding and a few coats of clear sealer (like this one). I thought the slab was fine in its original state, but a few coats of clear grout really brought out the wood!
Run home now and search your parents’ garage for any treasures you can reuse and recycle.
Alpine Natural Live Edge Wood Large Coffee Table
If you learn nothing else from reading this blog, you should know that my life experiences are often lessons of what not.
Today’s lesson? It’s so easy to put a piece of wood in your bag BEFORE your parents know what they have on their hands and turn the beauty into a coffee table. Just saying…
Mainly though, it’s a lot of fun for me to see something old (but not that old because I’m still very young) repurposed into something new and useful that will bring us joy for many years to come.

Thanks for hanging out with me today at my parent’s house! You are happy!
