« Part 4: Finished log base ready for the top Part 5 of Hollow Juniper Stump End Table series no next part

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 . 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.

Well, i’m confused, but then, it doesn;t take much to confuse me. I read your posting a couple of times, but I didn’t understand what exactly you’re trying to do! Sorry.

Imagine the plywood board you see in the first pic as a piece of glass, (only without the holes in it). The idea is to have about a 2” wide wood “bumper” wrap the outside edge of the glass, except for the very front convex part, (that will be the only area of glass edge showing). The final shape of the wooden edge will be similar to the mock up laminated piece you see in the first pic. The glass will then sit on top of the stump that is in part 4 of this blog as an end table.
