Finished a Coffee Table

I am putting the finishing touches on a coffee table this week.  It's made of an ash slab cut in half and then flipped over so the outside live edge is on the inside.  The empty space is then filled with a custom cut piece of glass.  On the opposite side of the 15 degree angle is a custom welded aluminum frame.

It was a lot of fun making this table and I have started making a matching end table with some of the extra ash.  I am really interested in exploring the idea of raw edges meeting finished surfaces like you see here.  In the furniture section you can see drawings of of desks and tables that explore this idea further.
