I had a customer order a dining room table that we sell in our store, they wanted it with a dark walnut stain and turquoise inlay in the table and bench. 8’ X 42”-48” wide 3” thick. The top alone is about 200lbs. This table is finished with an epoxy clear coat.

It’s a shame to stain, but it is a pretty table.

Little bit dark for my liking but the Customer gets what the Customer wants. Love the Turquoise inlay and the finish.
Great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Well, I guess using the cedar saved on the overall weight of the set. I really like the way you used whole nuggets and let the epoxy fill in. Great look, like the stones are under water. It is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks everyone for the comments, yep I think staining cedar should be against the law but everyone has different taste.
