This is the coffee table I’ve been working on, made with salvaged redwood from the demolition of a deck where I was house-sitting.

It was sort of a practice project for the large table I’m building. Designing the bases, testing proportions, planing and sanding, staining, rubbing five coats of Tung Oil into the wood—I’m very happy how it all came out.

The one difference on the big table will be rivers of translucent blue epoxy resin in the cracks and crevices of the table top. They will be stunning.

The table is huge, measuring 12′ x 3 1/2’—I can’t even put it together until we get the forklift out of here!
