I made this Walnut end table for my oldest daughter and son in law. I saw the concept at a Tile Center where they had built a bar and put lights behind the marble. This table has a 12” x 12” marble top with 4 sides that are 3” x 12” marble. Fairly inexpensive to make since there is not a lot of Walnut and you can sometimes find odd pieces of marble at a reasonable price. In this case the walnut came from a stash in my loft which has been “air drying” for over 20 years. I helped a man stack his walnut many years ago and my pay was in green lumber:) Nice and dry and works oh so nicely. If I had to buy the Walnut, this table would have cost about $100 +/-. The light is a very small 12” undercabinet fluorescent light with a clicker turn switch installed on the plug cord. Spray semi gloss Deft Lacquer finish.
