A while back I posted pics of the entertainment console I built. Here is the first of the matching tables. The birdseye trim is some of the fine stock from our member Barlow. Thanks Barlow. The trim also includes thin strips of bloodwood. The black walnut was air dried for 15 years. It has some great colors compared to kiln dried walnut.

That is beautiful. All I keep hearing is how great barlow’s material is and you can see it here. What finish did you use? I love all three of these projects. What a set.

The finish is Arm-r-seal topcoat urethane. If you haven’t used it yet, you gotta give it a try.

Nice looking table Vinman. I really like your selection of lumber. The grain is outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

The tables look great. Nice choice in materials. I may suggest glass on top. The raised panel looks like a dust collector and may be a catch all. Other than that nicely done.

Hi Vinman;

It is so reassuring to see concern for grain match. Sometimes that detail get lost in the project.

Both tables look great. Somebody, in addition to yourself should be very happy with the results.

You have captured the real beauty of the wood and enhanced it by setting it off with contrasting bands. A project to be proud of and enjoy for many years to come.
