This is my third end table from this oak I used clear glass for the inlay, I can’t wait to start the next one to see how it comes out, I never know till I start working on them and then it comes to me and they come alive. the base is hammered tubing with scroll.

Just beatiful. Really vibrant and warm. But I can’t see the glass…well done! Why glass and where does it begin & end?

Its crushed glass, the wood has a split in the middle and needs filled so I wanted to do something different.

same question as spunwood?

I am guessing that there is glass in the open cracks then ther is epoxy over the entire top, but that is only because you say there is glass inlay.

Looks good though.. even though the location of the glass has me stumped.

Greg, as a woodturner I often use coffee or even ground up pecan shells as filler. I have also used chili powder, brass filings from a key shop and even craft glitter. Isn’t it fun trying something different? That is one beautiful piece of oak and fine craftsmanship on your part.

-- JoeR Nothing that I could make will ever be perfect but I'll use it anyway.

Have your say...
