and a hefty 2.75" thickness now that it is smoothed and ready to ship
here, trevor is checking out and studying the cracks, which the client has requested that we fill.
and sometimes you just have to work 'on the table' ...

and sanding the entire top of the slab,
the defects were smallish, but still required some small pieces of added wood to make the fill convincing.
