We're doing what is called a " Live Edge"  on this table.  We remove the loose bark exposing the sap wood which is unbelievable on this piece. The outside 2-3 inches has incredible marbling, with colors ranging from cream to black.

If your looking for a great line of water based finishes, check out Target Coatings. They're using a few pics of some work we did using Target products for their website and product brochure.

One side just about assembled. I'm diggin' the sky scraper look of these things.
This is the idea for the table base

What the Cup!

We removed quite a bit of material off the bottom of our Myrtle table top getting it flat, must have released some pressure in the wood. Came in on thursday and found a slight cupping across the width. Solution, pile a bunch of heavy crap on top to hold it flat and let it sit awhile. Next week we'll send it through the wide belt sander, a couple passes on each side should make it dead flat.

The 77KZ1000 project is coming along. The black & white tank is a loaner from a great friend and local KZ guru Sander Knook. Hopefully Ruben will have the paint job done in time for The Bash

After Cleaning up the edges and joining the two pieces, we use a couple straight rails and the Festool router in a sled to gradually flatten the surface.
Here it is all cleaned up. 

One of our Favorite clients asked us to build her a dining table for her newly remodeled home in Carlsbad. Beautifully designed by Design Michael Paul Crosby in San Diego.  She was inspired by the Walnut slab cocktail table that we did for her so Debra and I took her to Tropical Exotic Hardwoods to look at some bookmatched sets. She decided to take a couple slabs of Tasmanian Rose Myrtle home for dinner.
