That is one nice table. Where did you get that redwood for the top? A great combination of woods.

Thanks Max, we really enjoyed working on this table. It was one of those projects that you just hate to let go. We got the top from Burlwood Online out of Oregon

Ya’ll have done it again. The movement of this piece is inescapable. It draws you in until the inlay begins to spark and the worm hole opens up and invites you on an adventure in time and space. I hope this piece lasts for many generations as a testament to the beauty of simplicity and your artistry.

Simply lovely. Where did you find the base? How did you attach it? It must have been a bear to finish.

Thanks for posting.
