« Part 3: Sanblasting Part 4 of Juniper Coffee Table Base #2 series Part 5: Ready to Spray the Finish »

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.

Your tables are awesome. I wish I could get some material like that. I bet some wicked carvings can come out of that. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Candy;

This is an awesome piece here. I hope you can get a premium price for it, due to the rarity of it.

It lends itself to so many different design ideas, committing to just one would be difficult.

Very cool.

WE were actually going to make it stand on end and use it for an end table until a coffee table was ordered and this is the piece our customer chose. Just a few more days and we will have it completed
