This is a zebrawood coffee table I call “V” table. I cut into a piece of limestone and put a glass top on.

Certainly a stunning, eye-catching table!

It’s an interesting combination of crisp linearity up-top, with the rough limestone base below.

Does the wood lift out of the limestone base, or did you secure it all together? If it’s loose, how is the stability of the piece? I’m wondering if you set something down on one of the ends, how the table reacts?

I would love to see a few more pictures of this piece! It’s very intriguing.

Beautiful combination of materials, and the way you have arranged them gives the viewer the maximum
exposure to the limestone and wood, with the glass emphasizing it. Did you cut the limestone V on a
wet cutting diamond saw? You have another masterpiece here. Thank you for sharing Dan. Having
grown up in the hill country of eastern Montana, I understand your love of the Texas hill country, but the
view of the Lolo peaks in the clouds surrounded by wooded mountains really starts my day right. Do you
have meadowlarks down there?

I love this project. Can I ask if this was zebrawood veneer? Wonderful design.

This project is solid zebrawood , I used a skill saw with jig to cut the limestone. I also used a epoxy glue to hold this poetic piece together for the best things in life are the simple things like happiness, joy and love. All this and Heaven too.

To all woodworker buddies , friends and admirers about this design. I only have this one record shot of the piece for it was hurried to a gallery for a show as soon as it was finished. I work under alot of deadlines because I don’t start till the night before. It also was sold that night at a preview showing before the conversion varnish even had time to cure and before I had time to take my hat off. Simplicity is the key to great design my friends to anyone who’s mind is wandering into spacious wonderment of the creative spirit.

OH if only i could do simple. I admire the results of others in this area, i just get so bored. I love the design. I get yelled at all the time to document my work, because I go the opposite route… really challenging tasks and long debates only to turn into something resolved. A fully resolved piece always looks simpler than it is. I try to limit myself to three design aspects and/or different materials… always three… so it nice to see glass, wood and stone!
