Similar slab of Juniper as the first except that the legs on this table are from Mt. Mahogany and I dyed it a little darker. I also had some of the same challenges with holes so used Epoxy to fill them once again. Next, I will make a few sofa tables.

That unfinished juniper is gorgeous. Very nice.

In my opinion the White wood with the dark contrasting knots is the most interesting look, and maybe in the future you could make one with a clear finish only. Did you get a router yet? Lots on ebay and craigslist, most come with at least one bit, some with sets of bits. I got all of mine that way and got rid of two the same way.

I agree with you on finishing them to show the natural color but, my client wanted the top dark. Seemed a shame to cover up the gorgeous natural beauty of Juniper but, what are you to do when the customer wants something else?!? My father lives in an assisted living facility and got to know a 93yr. old gentleman that used to work with Juniper and is selling me several pieces of his woodworking equipment. So far, I have been able to purchase a nice 10” Delta table saw and Ryobi table top planer for $100.00 and both come with their own stands that he built. He is also selling me 5 tenon cutters for only $150 for all 5, his router, forstner bits along with the bits he has for his router which I am very excited to get my hands on!
