hi every one and thanks for suport I apreceate the nice comments. you all help me on my daily persut of world class manzanita furniture. my days are allways full of family and work in shop.
been doing well things have been coming together great. heres today work ready for finish sanding and some type of glossy finish, any ideas out there, i use manzanita for lower work and black walnut for top very hard works great.
also use madrone, maple and manzanita for tops. fir also works good if old tree tight grain. i try to mix it up all the time selection is allways a good thing build it and they will come. i love the free flow nature of manzanita such a pretty wood.
these tables are very heavy. they will last forever and will hold a elephent. ha ha,
write on take care and enjoy your time in shop.

-- Chad Manzanitaman

Very cool stuff there. We need more close up shots of your project. I really favor the flow of the manzanita as well.
Whats with the “bear” wall on the left. Looks to be about 20’ tall?
Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Nice! Do you think you could take a few close ups of those tables?

I like the legs how they kinda splay out. From what I see of the tops they are striped. I like the variation in color, nice work!
