Modern Live Edge Waterfall Coffee Table Collaboration Part 2 | How-To

Wow, this was an absolute blast! This was a collaborative build with my fellow hosts of "The Crafted Podcast"--Johnny Brooke of Crafted Workshop, and James Wright of Wood by Wright. 

We each tackled different aspects of the build. I was responsible for forging the two drawer pulls, and fabricating the metal leg, Johnny tackled the slab and the waterfall leg, and James worked his 19th century wizardry on the drawer and dovetail slides.

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.
