These juniper top tables are from the same log, (a lightning strike juniper branch). I slab cut these at 4 inches thick, and used manzanita for the legs. The coffee table had a large cavity running down the side which was rotted and scorched from lighting passing through it, so instead of cutting it out and shortening the width of the top, I selected a dark red river rock (hardened clay) to fill it in with epoxy. The river rock matched the dark red of the manzanita well.

Hi Willie!

yes, legs are screwed on with three counter-sunk screws, wood glue, and dowels.

Have your say...
