Building slab furniture has become somewhat of a passion for me. Over the last few years I have literally built dozens of pieces from slabs. In this build I link up with Woodpeckers, to premiere their brand new Slab Flattening Jig . When I saw the options for the slabs to test out the jig, this ambrosia maple slab caught my eye. So I went to work getting down to a usable thickness, and as the voids and color in the wood came to life, I knew I had to turn it into A Live Edge Waterfall Coffee Table .
Working with live edge slabs is a blast. It is also super easy and can really allow some amazing wood, that wouldn’t make it into spec lumber, to be used as a statement piece. I got this concept for A Live Edge Waterfall Coffee Table from the wood itself. I had no clue what I was going to do with this slab until I had it milled flat and water popped it. Sometimes, you have to play with the hand you’re dealt. And in this project, I was throw pocket Aces.
