Here is my husbands table lamp, the coloration and movement has really come out after we sprayed the finish. This here is a super unique piece Feel free to check out our other finished lamps http://www.rockymountain-twist.com
Now that I have a list I suppose I have no excuse not to at least attempt to finish this thing. So this week I got started on list item #1… The stretchers. I had originally planned to build them out of the same ceder that the legs are made from but changed my mind in the name of weight and durability. So I rummaged through my pile of oak cut offs left from the top and found a slab just the right length for the long stretchers. I figured I would figure out what to do about the sh...
I am currently working on an extensive construction project.The customer asked me to clear some acreage blocking his view of the mountains. I gave him a break on the equipment price in exchange for any timber I remove.What I discovered were broadleaf maples straight and clear for 30 feet averaging 32 inches diameter, well over 12,000 bf in the butt logs.

A cove molding will be mounted on the top of it later..Front skirt board .Side skirt board.Next will be to mount the top with a piano hinge.
This story starts off sad, but ends happily for me at least. A local sawyer passed away last month and the family is having trouble getting rid of all the “STUFF” he has acuminated in his long lifetime. One of the items that they were particularly interested in liquidating was his inventory of wood. LOTS OF WOOD. This gentleman had several large warehouses full of lumber of different kinds. Thousands upon Thousands of board foot of Cyprus, cherry, heart pine, SYP, white oak, r...

Juniper Log Table with Stone Inlay Burled Cottonwood Top #3: Ready to sand the first stage of stone inlay
Here is how the table looks right now. Everything is bolted together, the branch pedestal, cottonwood base and cottonwood top have been bolted together. My husband has finished the first step in setting the stone inlay, we now need to sand down the stone so that is is smooth, then add a finer stone to fill in the gaps.
