« Part 1: Getting the plan Part 2 of Sweeping Juniper Coffee Table series Part 3: Sanding on the juniper base »

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 middle, so now there is a hole. I just love these, it sure adds some more character to the top.

The color will really be rich once we spray the finish

Wow, that top is looking good. I can’t wait to see it all put together.
