Beginning another dyed Juniper coffee table and showing one just completed. Shows some of the epoxy work I had to do on each. First one has Mt. Mahogany legs with bitterbrush accents and finished one has bitterbrush legs and braces.

Very nice. I see in the background that many more projects like this are going to be made.

I love the grain of juniper and your table shows it off so well, at first I did not know what was going on when I saw pebbles? embedded in the surface then I realized what it was, so cool…..

Thanks for your kind comments. I like to use our local quartz and moss when I have the chance to or if there is a hole in the wood. Dying the Juniper does take away a bit from the beautiful grain but, some of my clients want a darker look rather than the lighter colors in natural Juniper.

These are beautiful! I like the dyed top with the natural legs and the epoxy with stones/moss is awesome!

Very nice! Can I ask you how you epoxy with the depressions on the edge of the wood? I’m getting ready to do a top similar to what you’ve done, and am concerned about evenness and dripping. Again, very nice. I love the look of juniper, and you’ve done very well with it.
