« Part 2: Curving juniper strips for laminating Part 3 of Hollow Juniper Stump End Table series Part 4: Finished log base ready for the top »

Well, my first attempt with the spray bottle and torch from the previous post was successful for one board, but took way too much time and I have a few other projects going at the same time. So I decided to soak all my pieces in the bathtub overnight. The next evening I clamped all the boards together on the form and let dry overnight. After drying, I took off all the clamps, added a couple new holes to the form that I learned would have been nice to have on the dry fit. I rolled glue on each piece and clamped back on the form. I’ll let this dry another night and see what I get!! I have a few strips of young juniper, a few strips of ceder, and a few strips of old juniper, I’m hoping the colors and grain will flow together well after sanding down.

Your title says, “Hollow Juniper stump end table”, but from the pictures, I couldn’t see how/where the “hollow” stump is!

This is the jig that will be the glass top for the stump shown in part 1 and part 4 of this blog series. The plan is to form a wood bumper around the edge of the glass. You can barely see the traced outline of the stump in the middle of the clamping jig. This jig will eventually be the template to cut the glass, the holes drilled in it are just for the clamps.
