Last 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.
After I added the necessary support pieces, I had it sandblasted & then exposed it to the weather until the reddish brown color was very muted which was the finish that Tracy was looking for.It took several months until it was sufficiently faded. The only thing left was to build a crate that resembled a coffin & ship it to Annapolis.
