I dug out this large Geode from a quarry in Alexandria, Missouri many years ago. Sometimes I keep my materials around for many years before I think of the perfect use for them. I felt this Geode was large enough to place a slab of glass over it and present it as a small table. So I cut, ground and polished the Geode face and used a 3/8″ thick, 12″ round glass for its top.
I then cut out a beautiful wood base, from a slice of Bloodwood, and hand finished it. I’ve also added three pewter figures, from Design Toscano, which I modified for this piece, and installed them at three equal points. I then finished the bases bottom with heavy felt to protect furniture.
