Hello my name is Yanira La Puerta from Forma Color y Textura. (www.formacolorytextura.com) As an Interior Designer and a DIYer I am always creating things for my house. I made this table from a slab of Camphor Tree and I love the way it turns. Hope you like this tutorial.!!!

Step 1:

Go to a place to find your slab

Step 2:

Once you have your wooden slab, sand it and apply one or two coats of a protective product. I used for this one a clear polyurethane

Step 3:

select which legs are you going to use. I used this toilet brush holder. I though it might be look nice. I and I love how it ended up

Step 4:

Legs installed

Step 5:

Final result!! Hope you like it

    very nice wooden table. I bet no one guesses what the legs are! You have a great eye to spot interesting alternative ways to use things. I will be looking more outside the box from now on!
