Power Carving Project | Turning a Log into a Coffee Table

We found this huge section of a cottonwood tree at a community wood dump site and decided to turn it into a coffee table. Rob used a combination of Arbortech power carving tools and a chainsaw to form the table. The back side of the table was carved and charred to create a dark simulated bark and contrast with the natural finish he used on the front side and top.
