This 54” diameter table top has Maple, Birch, Walnut, & Ebony. I cut the parquetry with a scalpel, using the “Window Method” The outside bullnose edge is glued up with “Five” 1/8” layers of solid maple. The radius rings of ebony, were glued up on radius templates, with “Three layers of 3/32” to equal the 1/4” ebony inlays.
The center opening is open with a 3/8” thick, beveled glass insert. So that you could see the custom metal table base, of rings of spheres. I clear coated the top with “Three” coats of Magnalac dull precatalyzed lacquer. I was thinking of doing a blog on all my steps with pictures. Let me know if any one would be interested. Thank you. “Also my brother Dan, designed the table”.
