I love those colours from one wood species.

Is it all glued, or does it knock down?

Thanks, guys … Don the finish is about 4 coats of minwax sanding sealer followed by 2 coats of minwax semi gloss polly. Wester Red Cedar is very porus, it soaks up a lot of finish before the grain finally seals.

Rich, I’m kind of new to the Art Deco thing my self,, I took a trip down to Miami and the archetecture of the buildings inspired several table designs I am working on…

Thanks Guys,, Bob feel free to go crazy with it, just make sure its better than mine, so I can re-copy you – (-:

Yes Top, the colors are natural, unlike Aeromatic, or Spanish cedar, Western red is all over the map color wise, thats what I like about it…
