A perfect project.

The clients had spent a year working in Australia and came back with a plank of Eucalyptus.

Working with them I designed a table to showcase this wood. The table also appeared in Fine Woodworking Magazine’s Readers Gallery issue # 185.

Impressive piece, Don. Thanks for showing some of the process of cut selection from that board.
