Hi again,

This time I would like to share with you a Lignum Vitae table I made some years ago. Table top is 36” X 24”. It is an original artwork, but overall it has some Victorian and Eastlake influence. Other woods used were: Bullet wood, West Indian Satinwood, Cobana Negra, Ortegon, Fustic.

Thanks for looking.

You have a unique talent to be able to create such intricate pieces. I just picked up a 2” thick slice of Lignum Vitae that I have no idea what to do with. Thanks for sharing your wonderful work.
