I’ve made this style before with a different granite type but the same type of design. Koa wood finished in sprayed polyurethane, currently at 10 coats, about 5 more to go, then buffed out. Volga blue as some of you have seen me post before, has beautiful irridescent blue flakes in it at the right angle of light. They don’t show up that well, but look at my next posting of stingray that is made of same stone, and you will be able to see it in one of the pictures. Measures 24 tall by 18 diameter.

Very nice. Love the clean lines on the legs and the stone top just sets it off.

Good functional size for many uses.

Keep it up.

Oh wow, I just finished commenting on the other one, but this too is just AWESOME. I would be hard pressed to say which I like better, they are both outstanding!

Superb Dan! I like the round over/bullnose of the granite top with the curving of the legs everything complements everything perfectly. (including the Granite & wood you used)
Great Job!!

Where did the granite come from?

Hey Dan;

I’ve always been a leg man, and now I remember why.

Great design and workmanship.

This is a nice combination , but I’m sad that you only posted two pictures of her ….so far…..maybe you’ll post more once you get the next twenty coats of finish on her : )
