I finally completed my Hall Table. It is primarily made from Mahogany. The top and the shelf utilize a veneered panel of MDF with a mahogany frame. The veneer is curly bubinga. The accent wood is curly maple. The finish is 3 coats of wipe-on poly on top of 3 coats of clear shellac.

I downloaded a Sketchup copy of an office table from the net and modified it quite a bit for the hall table.

That is awesome! Your choice of woods was perfect and your craftsmanship looks great. That is a contest winner. The complementing shelf makes the wholly thing come together very well. Is that a functional drawer or just a false front?

Wonderful piece. Superb craftsmanship. The Bubinga is fantastic. It looks like a great finishing job too. You get an A+ from me. I wish I could make something that nice.

Exceptionally well done. That waterfall Bubinga makes the Mahogany work overtime, trying to keep up! Wonderfull combination of woods. The inlayed work accentuates the combination of the two woods marvelously! Congratulations on such a fine piece.
