This pedestal is the third pedestal in a set of 5 that we made for the same client. It has a curly redwood top with a hand carved edge and turquoise inlay. The base is made from burled pine and it was finished with Seal A Cell hand rubbed finish. I will post pictures with the sculptures on them as soon as I get them

Very interesting piece. I love the elegance of the inlayed top with the knarly, trunk-like look of the base. The colors and finish really set this contrast off as well. Very creative choice and use of your stock!

Tim and Candy,

It’s simply amazing how you can make gnarly wood look so elegant. The top looks like satin! Lovely!

Awesome piece, it’s a work of art itself. Great design and craftsmanship, the inlay makes a great accent. Impressive work!
