I received a call from an elderly gent who served in the 2nd WW in New Guinea. He asked if I could make a table from some timber he had brought back about 50 years ago. It was all small boards about 15mm thick and 120 wide by 1500mm long. I had to laminate everything to make the top and the legs.It was pretty gray when it went though the planer and I was pleasantly surprised at the other end.
Finish: Wipe on Poly.

Any guesses as to the species of timber ???

I’d guess but I would only be guessing.

I love the way you worked the the grain on the top.

The timber species is Diospyros ebenum or Macassar Ebony. Thanks for looking.
