Finally! Nearly two years after I began this project, I had time to complete it over the winter of 2013.
I put the top and waterfall leg together in July 2011 and then stuck the table on a shelf, where it waited patiently for me to finish the job.
The woods used in the table are spalted sweetgum and padauk; I thought the red of the padauk worked well with the many colors in the sweetgum.
The padauk stretchers are a single piece of wood that pass through the legs. It was a bit of a challenge to cut the mortises in the leg, which had softened so much during the spalting process but sharp chisels did the trick.
The finish is epoxy and lacquer.
