Cedar Coffee Table

21 Oct

I had the opportunity to acquire a rough piece of cedar. When a friend saw it, he requested a coffee table for a gift. Yet another challenge to create a custom , exclusive piece.

Original Top (1)

Another woodworking friend recommended the use of table top bow ties/butterflies to eliminate the possibility of the cracks  continuing to progress. After cutting the pieces on the band saw I traced the individual bowties onto the top and hand routered each one to fit.

Built custom cedar legs and attached the top

Then filled each hole with an Epoxy Resin allowing light to come through each one. Then I used another Epoxy – Parks Super Glaze to cover the entire top making a bar type appearance.
