Well, after a few months with this project in the back corner of my “to do” list, I’ve decided to finally get it done and also to rethink the curved top. I didn’t like the look of my mock up piece, and decided that my cutting equipment isn’t precise enough to cut thin flat pieces that will glue together without gaps,.... and I would need to build a much better jig to get the job done. So, I remembered that I still had 10’ of the board I used for the juniper foyer table http://lumberjocks.com/projects/49842 . It has the right color to go with the stump base, an I think the mill marks and termite holes will look really cool, so here is my return to the project. The only problem I’m worried about is that I cant finish my shaping and sanding without the glass installed. I’m going to route a groove around the inside to wrap over glass, so I need to get the inside curve shaped and finished with tung oil, put the pieces together around the glass and, and then finish sanding and oil the rest of it.
