This piece here is smaller and we are able to fit it in the blast cabinet. This is a lot nicer way to work, but man after a few days if this my neck gets a severe kink in it. The blast cabinet. After the red colored wood has been blasted. Now we need to shape the rough edges, sand, add the leg supports and glass supports.
Well, it is a good thing we didnt cut the original piece of wood down to size, because our customer decided on something a bit smaller. So here is the new piece of wood. Here it is cut down to size and some of the extra limbs removed.
I ran outside a few minutes ago and snapped these pictures of the sanblasting extravaganza. Actually it is not all that exciting, a bit dangerous from all the dust and right now it is cold. Since this base is bigger than our blast cabinet we had to construct our blasting booth. This morning it was sunshiny and promise of a warmer day, but with it being colorado weather it turned of cloudy and breezy and a bit cold. SInce we are bit behind schedule and trying to get things finished we ca...

Since early fall we have been swamped in the shop and still have not gotten caught up from Christmas. Our inventory is depeleted and we are trying to get items instock as well as work on a few custom orders. Here is a rough form piece of juniper that we will make into a coffee table that will have a rock slab for a top. Once this is finished it will be shipped to Norway.
Occulation of the Wood ....what is this shadow that transverses your mind, when you look at wood? One table top of rock maple that I am presently working on and hope to have done by the end of March. Many of the details as to how and what I am going after have not yet been fully worked out//worked in, but that’s only a matter of time as I listen to what the wood would say to me. ....and…. Things not known at this point: 1.)—no-name…. 2.)...
