My son and I made this table out of walnut and mesquite. We filled the voids with an epoxy that glows pale blue when not under light. We made the walnut sides to mimic the shape of the mesquite and fastened the two together (with about a half inch gap) with half inch square black metal rods. He has hinted at wanting to sell it :( but I think I was able to convince him otherwise … father/son project and all :) Thanks for browsing guys Rick

Very nice, it is worth keeping, when the money is gone you will miss the table.
