I was real happy with the way this one turned out. It was made for a customer a while ago, and I’ve wanted to make another for myself every since!

I really like how you took a picture before finish and one after. The figure of the leopard wood under the finish looks awesome

Thank you all for your comments.

One thing I wanted to add is that the thin strips between the leopard wood surface is the same wood just that it’s side-grain instead of face-grain.
