Very fun project. I really like the dished shelf on this, it just kinda fits for some reason. I forgot to take a picture, but I also inlayed a piece of polished petrified wood to the underside of the dish. Notice the crack in it, well it was too weak for my liking so I tried the inlay to add some strength. It worked great, kinda like a butterfly joint. Running the lamp wire was a challenge, but with careful planning I only had to drill out the side in one spot. I filled in the hole with a piece of a limb and sanded flush, it looks like another knot so most people wont even notice. Finished with 4 coats of hand rubbed tung oil and 2 coats of satin polycrylic.
