Spalted beech coffee table with walnut legs
I took a long time over this table, because the grain on the top was so beautiful I wanted the legs to complement it without overshadowing it.
The walnut legs are hand cut into the edges of the spalted beech top. Spalted beech is created when the log lies on the ground and decay sets in. Before the decay takes hold, these amazing patterns are created.
The top was then sanded many times until it became beautifully smooth, then treated with food-safe mineral oil.
