Torched alder console table | How-To

So this was another commission for the same folks who I built the "Bar Height Slab Table" for. This was a lot of fun! I experimented a bit with some new finishing techniques, and I'm very happy with the results. But I'm also a little bummed that I didn't get a better picture of the finished project, I'm not much of a photographer, but the lighting made it impossible for me to get a good shot.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed the video, I'd love to hear from you!

Bar Height Slab Table | How-To

This is hands down one of my favorite builds to date! I enjoyed the entire process, from the renderings(pics on my instagram) to the final assembly. 
The client wanted a unique bar height table, and I stumbled across a beautiful cherrywood slab with the proper dimensions. I have always had an affinity for tusk tenon furniture, but I wanted to work metal into the design--the solution I came up with was steel legs with a wooden stretcher and zebrawood tusks. 
Thank you for watching, If you would like to help, please like, comment, or share!
