Love the curly Redwood!
Created this coffee table from a slab of Redwood…has some great grain that I thought I would share.
I had the slab shaped out when it sold and the client needed it at 11 feet rather than the 12+ that it was…the cut off end became matching end tables.
Tons of turquoise inlay!
Coffee table is approx 11 ft x 52”, end tables are approx 2 ft across
Very fun project to do…

Amazing wood. I really enjoyed looking at these. Nice design. I like the sawtooth-like pattern on the ends of the end tables. Very nicely done.

Wow! That’s one heck of a beautiful Coffee table Joni! The curly redwood is amazing and all that nice turquoise makes it look even better. Where do you buy your turquoise? Love this project!
Thanks for sharing!

Tony, I am fortunate enough to make it to the gem shows in Tucson and Quartzsite…great places to source inlay materials for my tables and such.

Thank you Joni,
I posted my first box with turquoise inlay last week. I really loved how it looked and now I’m hooked.
A few buddies gave me some tips on where to buy some but seeing your beautiful work I thought I would ask.
You are very fortunate indeed! Love your work!

That is gorgeous wood and beautiful work!! Very impressive.

Can you please tell me what type joinery you used on the bottom “box” and how you joined the top?

Also, if anyone can share where to find turquoise inlay, I’d love to try it—it really adds a remarkable pop of color!

What tools did you use to create the inlay area?

Love the grain and the turquoise compliments it very well.

Looks like a satellite image of a mountain range with a river running through the valley.

Those look really great. I love the huge pieces of turquoise, where did you get them? They get expensive quick.
