I take you through the live edge slab buying process on my most expensive purchase yet. I have just been commissioned to build my biggest table to date, so I needed to find the perfect pieces to get started. I show the online shopping process in addition to the in person viewing. I even added in an interview with the owner of Goby Walnut at the end.
