This is a 9 ft x 35 in desk top. I made it with solid walnut. in the bottom corner of each side I placed tuna inlays. The body of the tunas are done with manzanita. The side fins are paduk and purple heart. The top and bottom fins are done with yellow heart. The eyes are filled with colored epoxy.
I finished it with shellac, 3 coats of crystalac and 6 coats of arm r seal.
