A very long faded sandblasted coffee table

driftwood & glass cfoffee tableLast year Tracy contacted me about creating a driftwood coffee table that would accommodate a 92″ long oval glass. Almost all of the driftwood stumps I acquire are not long enough to make that work without an inordinate amount of glass overhang. However I did have one stump that I had put aside because it was long & I didn’t want to trim it because it was so perfectly symmetrical in its natural state.10-10-14 232
