Last year when I was working on a clients home I wanted to do a coffee table out of a mesquite slab. So I got the slab locally and had a simple iron base made. It was in its completely natural state when we got the slab so Jeremiah sanded it endlessy until the beautiful grain showed, cleaned up the edges while still maintaining the irregular natural edge. I loved how it turned out so much I had him make one for the store. Each one is different and a little piece of the desert.
