This is a beautiful 10 foot live edge dining table! It was made from a single slab, from a Mexican tree called Parota. As you can see, there is so much character to the grain pattern. It’s impressively gorgeous!
I ended up giving this couple a coffee table for their wedding present and they asked me to do a massive dining room table for their new house. I found a local woodworker who was willing to part with this Parota slab. It was 10 feet by 4 1/2 feet. It was by far the biggest project I’ve worked on at that time.
For anyone that wants to work with this wood.
*Forewarning* you’ll definitely need a respirator and some good air ventilation. This stuff is SPICY!!! I couldn’t go back into my shop for 3 days and I was still sneezing all the time.
