When I got this Spalted Maple it had some rot spots so I used a router to cut them out and inlayed them with turquoise and blue lapis then finished it with several coats of rub on poly, I made the metal base to make a coffee table. It is 50” x 29” x 18” high.

This is absolutely beautiful, Greg. That is a wonderful piece of wood.
