Here is a coffee table that we are currently working on, this is one of those juniper pieces that we have had laying around forever and it has finally manifested into a neat little coffee table. It will stand aroun 19” tall This table will have a burled cottonwood top and the juniper branch base will be sitting on a cottonwood base as well. This top is almost kidney/bean shaped and has 4 hearts, this will have malachite stone inlay. Sanding off the gold color an...

Here is the second coffee table base which we are going to be working on, this one will ship to Norway as well and it will have a glass top
One rainy day a couple of weeks back I was scrounging around for a quick project when my wife. near her wits end dealing with the three screaming, growling creatures with gnashing teeth we call children, told me that unless I found something for them to do over the weekend, she was leaving me for the David Hasselhoff look-alike UPS delivery man. Never being sure if she’s serious, I decided to not take any chances and figured I’d kill two birds and quiet three kids with one ston...

Here is the top, it is 70% sanded. You can see the large crack around the center of the the hearts, we will fill these cracks in with inlay and add some to the other side as well so we can balance it out. We add a tempered hardboard to the underside of the top, this adds extra stability and seems to help the wood from twisting over time plus with a few wood screws, bolts and gorrilla glue, it is a great way to attach the top to the base. We knocked the dark spot out of the...
As you can see, all the crevices have been sandblasted, the gray wood has been taken down to the rich wood grain and the gold is turning to blonde. This has been sanded with an electric sander and now I have about half a day of handsanding to make sure there are not any scratches, then it will be time ot build the legs. There is something very alluring about the movement of this wood, it can be so wild looking, yet so calm that it just pulls you in.
Wooden Ageless Piquancy ....who lights the fire, that burns from within, to without, of yonder tree….? ——and so it ‘just is’, that on this morning of grace-full and many intended beginnings, that the silence of my hearts breath is heard among the awakening of dawn, till from out of the past i am encouraged to withhold from wood no-longer…. —-now i know that some would say ‘the way of wood’ is lost from view, but i will continue to...

This end table will be a gift for my grandpa commissioned from my grandma, I was so grateful to take on this project as I had been wanting to build him something special anyway but wasn’t sure what to build. It will sit about 18” tall, just perfect for setting his book and cup of coffee on from his recliner. The top will be a curved glass with a laminated juniper bumper around the edge. This will be my first attempt at curving and laminating wood, I hope it looks as good in rea...
