Live Edge Class at Snow Farm, Massachusetts - Part 4 Lisa's Cherry Table

Furnished content.


One of the unique pieces built during my weekend workshop at Snow Farm was a live edge coffee table.

Furnished content.

The resulting joint is so attractive, with wide tails reminiscent of hand-cut joints, that I think it's worth the extra time.
