This table was a large time consuming project, that was enjoyable but also a test of endurance haha. We are part of a website called CustomMade and picked up this project as a custom order. The client contacted us with his project idea and we put together design ideas for him.
The redwood was ordered out of California from redwoodburl.com We purchase most of our redwood slabs from them. This slab is by far one of the most phenomenal slabs we have worked with, the grain is just amazing.
The juniper stump is one that my husband and I harvested not too far from our house, luckily when we had found it, it was right beside the road and we were able to roll it into our trailer.
The base was leveled using a router and handmade guide, sandblasted, hand sanded, oiled and finishing oil
The table top was also leveled using a router and handmade guide system. We left the live edge and polished the top from 180 to 600 and 000 Steel Wool, finished with several coats of armor seal an finished of with old english lemon oil. The table top is inlayed with malachite.
The table and base were crated separately, each weighing in at over 600lbs, and sent on a freight truck to california.
The table is 41” tall. The table top is 5.5’ by a 6.5’
