no previous part Part 1 of Sweeping Juniper Coffee Table series Part 2: The table top. 70% Sanded »

We have had many requests for coffee tables, so we are making them as fast as we can. We plan on making 2 more coffee tables and I think the next two will have glass tops, anyway here is the project that I am working on.

This table has a “sweeping” movement to it. I had a request to make on that was similar to a coffee table table I posted on here. Well this is as close as I can get. We will also have to add a couple of legs so that it will stand without sitting on a base

Here is the double heart, burled cottonwood top we will be using.

Gorgeous stuff. I love the juniper legs you use. I look forward to seeing the completed project. Thank you for sharing.

You always have some of the most beautiful juniper. I can’t wait to see that cottonwood top sanded down.

Speaking of which how do you go about milling all these huge slabs you use in your work?

Thank you. My husband has a chainsaw mill, which is a steel frame which your chainsaw some how attachs to and mills the wood. He says it is a lot of work and pretty hard and slow going. We are hoping to get a regular mill, but that is a ways down the road.
