Hello Folks, Just thought I would post some pics of another table I made. I call it Cedar Blue. The wood came from a recycled utility pole which was rough sawn over 40 years ago. The wood was stored in an old home which had to be emptied for the new owner. Lucky I was there to get some of the 2”x12”x 12’ long pieces.
The blue color is inlaid blue latex paint mixed with water putty. I free hand the design randomly between the circles which are done with a home made trummel. The small circles were made with plug cutters.
Thanks for lookin.

WOW, how deep are the patterns? This is a nice look and you should do a video on the process.
