Well fellow woodworkers its been awhile since Ive been on here, been quite busy the last year a lot of military work. But in my spare time this is my latest creation. My wife has been wanting a new table so this is what I whipped up for her. The core of the table top is zebra wood, I trimmed that with a 1/2 inch border of wenge, the outside border is lace wood, the mitered corners are locked together with a zebra wood butterfly. I thought it would tie the whole table top together. the tressle is of brazilian cherry. the dimensions of the table are 31 high, the top is is 41×71. I hope you all like it.

Way to show off that zebrawood, in both the center of the top and the butterflies!

The zebra wood and wenge were joined with glue and pin nails, the lace wood was then joined with glue and biscuits. Unfortunately the chairs I did not make they were a gift from my wifes uncle who bought them raw and then finished them. Someday I would like to try my hand at making some chairs.
