Great looking table. Do you have a closer view of the top?
I’d like to check out the laser carving.

I’m also with GaryK. A bigger picture of that CNC cutting would be great.

Lyptus is a delightful wood and I’ve come to really appreciate it’s qualities. The table top is lyptus, the legs and aprons are mahogany. However, lyptus can mimic mahogany so well that it would be difficult to detect. It machines beautifully and with the Maple Aniline dye I used in the table top it has a color that I liken to champagne. When burnished (rubbed out with 1000-grit paper and automobile rubbing compound) it seems to glow.
Thanks for your nice comments.
