« Part 5: Fitting and installing breadboard end Part 6 of African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table series Part 7: Assembling base »

Sanded the breadboards in tonight, and used a 1/8 roundover bit to break the top and bottom edges of the top panel. Then added some BLO mixed 50/50 with MS to brighten it up and show it off a little. I like the way the mahogany grain aligns with the curl in the maple and I really love the quarter-sawn curly maple on the edges.

Looking good. And that maple’s grain is really pronounced. Makes all the difference.
