Being able to create furniture around your wood may seem backwards, but when you have very special lumber, its hard to resist. These boards were hidden away in a log wrapped in poison ivy and littered with bulletts. Luckily, there were four 16 inch wide boards screaming with color and figure. Finished with two coats of epoxy on top and gloss marine varnish on framing, these dining tables are ready for years of use.

That wood is of the “Holy Smokes” variety!
Great job on bringing out it’s splendor on that nice table!

That is very beautiful. There was a lot of WOW under the poison ivy and bullets. Great job.
