River Coffee Table – Daniel D. Brown, 2018

We finally have a new coffee table! Lombardy poplar (not to be confused with tulip poplar, which isn’t actually a poplar), walnut, epoxy (West System), and blue ocean pigment (Eye Candy). This was definitely a learning experience, with many mistakes and challenges along the way. But in the end, I’m more than happy with how it turned out – and it’s much prettier than our old particle board/veneered table. The top came from a tree cut down across the street from our house. It had been standing mostly dead for several years (like most of the Lombardy poplars in the US). I chainsawed and milled the log myself. This table took me almost exactly a month to build. See my instagram for several posts detailing this build.

Scrollsaw Nautilus Shell #4 – Daniel D. Brown, 2017, Red Oak, Poplar, and Pine

I made this one from the same wood I used to make Scrollsaw Nautilus Shell #3. I decided to try some more interesting shaping on this one. I also finished it with Walnut oil (food safe) instead of polyurethane.

Scrollsaw Nautilus Shell #3 – Daniel D. Brown, 2017, Red Oak, Poplar, and Pine

This is the third nautilus-inspired scrollsaw shell I’ve made (see #1, and #2). This one I made from some red oak, pine, and poplar I laminated together and cut into wedges (by hand).
