<%@LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%> 6/17/08 Redwood Table

 

This is my second Redwood table made of an all-natural-edge piece of Redwood Burl.  After many hours of hand sanding and some special finishing techniques, I got the grains in the wood to glisten.  I took the later photos out in the sun, which made it glisten even more.  The last two photos are of when I was gluing the top to the base with a couple of shims to account for the lack of flat surface.  You can get an idea of what the Redwood looks like before I did the finishing. 

 

 

 

This is a bowl of Spalted Tamarind.  It's a neat and rare wood.  I've only seen it twice.
