Here it is guys the table is done.
Lots and lots of hours of work.
Best marquetry from my part so far.
Letters were real challenge but surprisingly and against all odds its done.
Enjoy :)

Holy Crap!!! That is a masterpiece! I think marquetry is way beyond my capabilities. Going to try something simple one of these days just because I love it so much.

Don’t mind me… I’ll just be over here picking my jaw up off the floor.

What’s the purpose for the removable medallion?

Hi guys, thank you for the comments and appreciation.
The square space in the middle has been accurately measured to fit a large cash prize for some special golf tournament.
When the lead is open all you see is a layer of red coloured banknotes :)
No of course not its a joke lol its for very special books, but please don’t ask any more questions about it :(
