This is a table I made last summer as a wedding gift. Its made of lacewood and I forget the dimensions but I think the top was approx. 18”-20” wide.

That is a very nice table. Well done.

I don’t want to start any controversy but lacewood and leopardwood are often confused. Lacewood is from Australia and has smaller “scales”. Leopaardwood is from South America and has larger “scales”. Based on my exposure to both, this looks more like leopardwood. You may want to look at pictures of lacewood and leopardwood on the internet and check it for yourself.

It really does not matter. This is a beautiful table regardless of which wood it is.

Man G, I got to get me some of that wood. First the rocking chair and now this. Forget tasteful highlights for outstanding pieces, I want more, more, more. Superb project.

Do you perhaps have a pic of the underside? I would love to see how you created the floating top. Very beautiful project that I’m sure the newlyweds must have loved. Pat
