this is 1 of the most recent tables. its for my girlfriends mother.. the top is made of cedar, ash, cherry, and pine framed around each other.. the whole bottom is pine stained early american with gloss poly on top. its not a true mission arts table, but i think it turned out looking pretty good =)

The top is very cool. They way you laid out the wood on that top adds a lot of visual interest.

Very interesting design.

As long as it keeps you in good standing with gf’s mom, that’s all that matters. :-)

If you want to call this a mission table I don’t see any problem with that. The top is very unique and adds a lot of detail to the piece.

Thanks for the post.
