Ron Householder's Juniper Bed

We're pleased to select Ron Householder of Crescent, OR for our Wood Finishing Showcase. His Juniper Bed is really amazing.

Dear Minwax,

I searched for a long time for the character pieces of western juniper, then spent about one month making the pieces fit together. I also sanded them down to a final finish with 220 grit paper.

Ron finished the bed with one coat of Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane in satin, and then two coats of Minwax® Wipe-On Polyurethane in satin. He mentioned that he uses only Minwax® products to finish his wood projects, which also include lamps, vases and tables made of the same unusual twisted juniper.
