Redwood and Manzanita Table ........... The base was once a 100 plus manzanita bush , it was found with the center hollowed and burned out by wildfire years and years ago…........the manzanita kept living and growing for many years after…......the tops are Ancient Redwood from Northern California…......they have more in common with the manzanita trunk than you might suspect…........the centuries of rings have show the history of more than once when fire happened for the best of their forest….....similiar tales from thousands of miles apart…

That is a very unique piece. I have never seen manzanita before. Seeing different woods and their integration into furniture pieces such as this is one of the side benefits to being part of this site.

Thanks for sharing.

The table looks great and is a testament of the diversities of woods and the struggles for life.
