We're doing what is called a " Live Edge" on this table. We remove the loose bark exposing the sap wood which is unbelievable on this piece. The outside 2-3 inches has incredible marbling, with colors ranging from cream to black.

We removed quite a bit of material off the bottom of our Myrtle table top getting it flat, must have released some pressure in the wood. Came in on thursday and found a slight cupping across the width. Solution, pile a bunch of heavy crap on top to hold it flat and let it sit awhile. Next week we'll send it through the wide belt sander, a couple passes on each side should make it dead flat.

One of our Favorite clients asked us to build her a dining table for her newly remodeled home in Carlsbad. Beautifully designed by Design Michael Paul Crosby in San Diego. She was inspired by the Walnut slab cocktail table that we did for her so Debra and I took her to Tropical Exotic Hardwoods to look at some bookmatched sets. She decided to take a couple slabs of Tasmanian Rose Myrtle home for dinner.
