I Built this table for my brother & sister in law. Nice big single slab of alligator juniper with a cross cut manzanita wood pattern inlayed in the center, accented with crushed turquoise.
(Sorry I didn’t have some better pictures for this project)

Gorgeous table Bradley Love the Free Flow Design! Would look great in MY Front Room! ...LOL..

Picture aren’t bad compared to some of the XXXX that gets posted on here.


EDIT: Hope you don’t mind but I just had to try and get a good look at the Complete Table. The colors probably aren’t all that close because I don’t have the actual wood in front of me. Close Bradley? To much color I think.

Your “Juniper Kitchen” is “OUTTA SIGHT”. Great Work!

I like your use of cross cut (“oyster cut”) inlay pieces. You have done them perfectly.
Nice work.

Very nice table, how did you apply your turquoise and where do you buy yours at, especial on the side there by the knot?

Todd Barrone, I position the wood piece so the inlay area is flat, then fill in cracks or knots with crushed turquoise, purchased from any rock and mineral shop (lots of turquoise in AZ). Then use mill tape or rubberized tape around the fill area to create a dam, and pour a clear bar top coating over the area (Enviro Tex Lite).
