As you know, we recently moved to a new apartment and I have been itching to make a new coffee table for the space that can double as a place to eat as well (studio living, for the win)! So, after sourcing a super funky slab at a local lumber dealer I knew I just had to turn it into a live edge coffee table, ASAP. If you’ve been here for a while then you already know what a sucker I am for live edge projects, especially when they are crawling with character.

You can follow these same steps to create a shelf as well! Here’s how!
