Siberian Elm, formerly shading a neighborhood in Portland, OR.  Please forgive me for killing the edge.

Purchased the slabs from Salvage Works in Portland.  Milled and kiln dried, ready to sand.  Nice helpful folks, good selection and fair prices.

Top slab (left in picture) is 2" thick and the leg slab (right) is 2-1/2".

Final overall dimensions are 20" w x 48" l x 17" H

The legs were glued up to get the desired width and are joined to the top with three 14mm dominoes on each end.

Sanded up incrementally to P220g and finished with two coats of Osmo satin hard wax oil.  Green Scotch Brite pad (Viles) for first coat burnish and white pad on the second coat.

I used my TS75 saw with the 400 and 1900 rails along with a TSO GRS-16 guide rail square.  ETC EC 150/3 sander for sanding and rubbing in the oil.  Also, a Domino XL and MFT/3.

This was my first slab-style project and I anticipate doing some more.
