I thought I would include a few more photos, showing the construction details.
I’m not sure why I always end up with the photos in reverse order, but maybe you should start from the bottom!
Completed top, waiting for the edge shaping and butterflies.

Lee and Evan installing 1/8" thick, Wenge edge banding.

Note the full sized drawing on the M.D.F. sheet, complete with the joinery drawn in. This allows us to make the parts, and test them against the drawing.
Once this was done, we added the felt, sanded and finished the table with conversion varnish.
Hope you enjoyed this.
