« Part 2: Test top done, now for the custom table Part 3 of Sculpted Juniper picnic table series Part 4: Frame assembly »

As I was working on the sculpted top, I found a bullet that I somehow milled in half with my chainsaw. I’m sure that was pretty hard on my chain at the time as the jacket of the bullet is still intact!!

Busy week so I didn’t get as much done on this project as I would have liked, but it is coming along nice. All 4 boards for the top are almost done shaping, and all the material for the frames has been rough cut to size.

I spent an evening building 8) 4’x8’ tables for an upcoming wedding…..

and spent all day Saturday harvesting two 10’ long logs that are going to be used for a spiral staircase…(someone elses project, I’m just providing the logs!)

Wish I had some juniper. Love the look. Sympathize with the busy schedule though.

How would it look for a coffee table with natural edges?

Did the bullet “kill” the tree? ;-)
