 started on sides this week and put in around 35-40 live edge slabs so far, with lots more coming. Too much work for this old guy. Puts me to bed early.

Nicely done.  Those look like some fine slabs.

   I like it! What did you use to make the racks? Are those pipe or rebar or what? I'd love to see more detail on them if you can include a picture or two.

all the rack is a 1x6 attached to wall with floor flanges that you screw into and what you see most are 1" pcv pipes screw into them. The pvc will not hold up good. I'm slowly replacing them with 3/4 steel pipes cut into about 18" long. I when this afternoon and pickup 4 more pipes 21 feet long that I'll cut for new holders and start replacing the pcv a little at a time.

be great if you can put the pipe on the wall then a pvc sleeve over it. I have not had good luck with metal touching wood. it likes to leave black lines.

   Thanks. I can see now how you did it. I like the idea of metal pipes with PVC sleeves over them.
