Table made of Minger (matumi), this wood has no distinct difference between sapwood and heartwood, oily smell, very hard, fine grained and heavy (air dry 1026kg/m3)
the matumi is a protected tree in South Africa, a popular wood for making dugout canoes in the countries north of Zimbabwe.
Table has a glass inlay, I use this table at reception at my office.

Welcome to Lumberjocks! I love rustic live edge and your table is very interesting. I like how the live edge runs all the way around – and the top panels join together like a puzzle. Would it be possible to show a photo of the bottom of the table (underneath)?

I love this table! However, from the pictures, it looks like the glass is below the level of the wood. I think I would prefer it level with the rest. I guess it would make it difficult to do that and keep a natural edge on the wood. I would have to learn how to cut glass and probably ruin several expensive pieces while learning it. Thanks for sharing.

Nice job. I have a large mirror that I am hoping to make a head board out of with this concept.

That is a nice table and I love the design of it. The wood is beautiful. Good work.
