This is a table that we are truly proud of. And had plenty of learning experiences to go along with it. The table top is 5’ x 4’ burled cottonwood. We used kingman turquoise on the inlay. For the table top finish we use tung oil for the first time ever…. wow…. that was an experience. Then we had a few blemishes in the finish and endd up using minwax paste wax as the final finish. I think this table is very well perserved, hard and durable.

The base is made of a solid piece of juniper and fnished with satin polycrylic which we sprayed on. The overall height is 17”

Candy and Tim,

Another beautiful work of art. It is a very massive looking piece, with great lines.
