Elm natural edge coffee table with epoxy resin fill and hairpin legs

Natural edge epoxy resin coffee table, elm with hairpin steel legs

This beautiful coffee table is made from a single piece of elm with the natural edge retained to create a highly unusual shape.  The unique design features a full-thickness epoxy finish in emerald green, all polished to a beautiful sheen. The legs are made from 12mm steel in a hairpin style.  I make all items myself from my workshop in the Leicestershire countryside.  For this table, I selected the elm from a local source, removed all loose bark to reveal the beautiful grain and natural edge (sometimes known as waney edge).  The top was then sanded many times until it became beautifully smooth, then treated with food-safe mineral oil.
