I like the look of this table. I wish I knew more about it.

I can see the zebrawood on the top. It looks like a maple surround on the top. What are the legs and lower shelf made of? How did you accommodate for wood movement in the top? How did you finish it?

I’m guessing it is zebrawood and curly/tiger maple, nothing else (other than maybe some regular maple)?

Tell us more about it please!

How’d you finish it?

A strikingly bold piece of furniture with the wood you chose!
