This coffee table is made of walnut with jatoba panels and jatoba inlay. I stole the lifting mechanism from an old coffee table I had. I was worried about the racing stripe style of the inlay but think it came out ok.

Great job. Nice to put your laptop on so it a bit higher and closer to you. Congrats on that finish too. Greetings
