It always amazes me how fast time goes by and how busy we all seem to be. I always tell myself that I am going to keep up to day with this blog and post weekly. Haha well is seems like my intentions are good but finding the time has been crazy. Anyway, for reals this time, I will be posting projects weekly, I believe I finally have a system….

These three redwood curly slab tables were made together as a set. The original plan was to have one table that was 10’ long, when we ordered the slabs fro Redwood Burl Company and they were getting ready to ship, our clients and us decided to build two tables that are 5’ long.

The slabs arrived and sat in storage until we were able to start on the table project. When the time came we brainstormed some different ideas since our client gave us free creative design over the tables. We decided that it would be a great idea to make three tables, with the larger redwood table being the tallest and then making the smaller tables shorter.

Once we had the tables completed and set up, we were surprised at how well it all came together. This project was a complete joy to work on, I love being able to see how the wood comes to life with a little bit of patience and love.

Curly redwood is by far our most favorite grain of redwood slab to work with. The coloring and grain truly speaks for itself.

I absolutely love the edges of the slabs, that to me shows very unique and high level creativity

Beautiful work as always. Great eye for seeing the beauty in the wood.

I really love these. Both the bases and the tops are just beautiful. I’m sure I could get caught up in looking at these for hours if I had them in my home and I’m betting the owners won’t regret giving you freedom to come up with your own design.

cdaniels – I agree with you, my husband is quite talented when it comes to shaping the edges, he has a way of making the grain just flow….

These tables are another favorite, the contrast in color and compliment of both species of wood
