This is exactly what I've been thinking ov doing on an upcoming project. Mike, what did you use as an adheasive? I've been looking a few epoxies aimed at kitchen countertops.
Wow! That's a beautiful design as well as a beautifully-crafted piece. I especially like the proud dovetail pins on the case. Tres cool, Mike.
Is that a clear finish over white oak? Or is there some fuming involved...?
Very nice, Mike! Even better than the pair of small tables you made. BTW, How did you inset the tiles on the table top? Will there be a gap as the top frame shrinks and expands with the seasons?
Great job Mike! You nailed it. Your brother should be very happy.
