Butternut!! This is a great wood to work with! I highly recomend this wood for construction that needs strength but also ease of milling. With so many diferent methods of joinery I needed a stable wood that wouldn’t constantly split out on me. I also didn’t need anything really showy as the focal points of this piece are the spaulted birch panels and the parkettry top. All in all a joyous project to build!!

C’est belle!
And you didnt put the orb in the center of the top but a bit off the center, nice choice :), my art teacher says it catches more attention that way

Very nice work. I like the selection of woods. Just curious, any reason you didn’t use a more solid color for the “sun”?

Outstanding piece. You certainly have a talent for design and the craftsmanship is equally impressive.
