I was going to post this after I got the poly finish, which will make the colors really POP.. but this is for you Vonhagen. Please let’s try to get along on this site through some manner of respect and hate each other in private?

It is bloodwood veneer in laid with madagascar ebony, a reconstituted ebony veneer, on laminate italian poplar veneers, with a 1/8” steam bent walnut core.. the center is bloodwood stock, on poplar veneers with fiddle back Maple filaments and solid madagascar ebony anthers and stigma. I will have much better pictures showing details in a few days.

Dr Dirt.. :) I’ve been using a two part epoxy from WestSystem, one of the combinations fills open pores very well … and almost disappears under a varnish coat. If I get another order for a table like this I am most definitely switching to double ply veneers.
