I like that you left some sapwood for highlights. Love it.

This is a beautiful piece. I took the time to view more of your projects. You are highly talented, not only as a woodworker, but in design as well. Some really great work.

the top was 50percent sap monte so I decided to go with an all walnut base and use the top (with its sapwood) as the contrast. I like this one a lot and if I had a place for it I might actually keep it, but the all mighty dollar wins out and it will be getting out for all to see this weekend in Reston, VA.

Great proportions, it’s easy to make this style look bottom heavy, but you found a nice balance.

Great table and I agree with above the sap wood adds character to the wood. I did this on a outdoor walut table as well. Very ncie.

Great looking hall table! I love how the top seems to be hovering above the base.
