Torched alder console table | How-To


So this was another commission for the same folks who I built the “Bar Height Slab Table” for. This was a lot of fun! I experimented a bit with some new finishing techniques, and I’m very happy with the results. But I’m also a little bummed that I didn’t get a better picture of the finished project, I’m not much of a photographer, but the lighting made it impossible for me to get a good shot.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed the video, I’d love to hear from you!
