Very nice table. Did you use the same veneer on the bottom too or just a cheaper backer veneer?

I believe that I used a 2 plied mahogany backer, the crossbands are, if I remember correctly are Okume, ran at 22degrees. There really is not use using a burl backer, especially when noone will see it. As long as you use a wood with the same density and finish both sides the same you can get away using different material for your back. When I made this table, I wasnt comfortable with doing miters for such a focal piece, so I used mortice and tennon joints. I should take a better picture of it, the woods are aging together nicely.
