Awakened In Your Gobi ....it seems as if i am teller of tales that bears your beauty forth,why am i so woodly anomic when all your warmth of hue surrounds me,culler of the art that comes from hand-tooling your existence of being,while faith-fully noted are the cracks of character that provide story…. ....planed from the start by gouges that wrought some sense of stability,your spoken desire was what soon caught the attention of my ears,and what if my hands started breathing wi...
Hey everyone we are working on updating our log furniture website. Come to http://www.cedar-stuff.com tell us what you think.We enjoy working with the natural log items, we try not to alter the shape of the natural tree. we have used everything from tree roots to the top uper most twigs,I would like to start a blog on my work as we produce it.Say from how we gather and find the logs we use to how we clean and build with them. Right up to the finish. We do have a store front we sell out of als...
Here it is!!
Here it is delivered to house. It takes two people to carry each stump and six men to carry the top up the stairs and into the house. I sure am glad I was the one taking the pictures. The measurements on this table are 81 1/2” x 44” and 31 1/2” tall.
Well, here it is sprayed and ready to take out for delivery. We finished with Satin Polycrylic
The stumps have been sanded and bolted to the bases. Tim leveled the tops after these pictures were taken, we are ready to spray
The stumps have been cut down to size, the sharp edges on the burls have been cleaned up and it is time to start sanding.
The guy that purchased this table has a 600 lb granite top. So we had to make something large, sturdy and yet attractive. The cottonwood came from the K Ranch on the Colorado Utah border in Dinosaur Colorado. And yes it is seriously the name of a town. Here is the rough material. each stumo will sit on a base, the base it not necessary, it adds to the beauty
Here is the other coffee table, my husband is working on one and I am working on the other. You can see that the gold color of wood is now getting lighter This side is finished, time to roll it over.
We are finally at the sanding and polishing stage. We shand with 180 to 220 on the darker wood and 220 – 400 on the lighter wood. We will then take it outside where the light is perfect and make sure that we have all the scratches out of it. The colors look dull but once we spray it they will stand out.
