Here’s a mesquite bar top my wife and I just finished. It has lots of turquoise from end to end and all kinds of nautical items inlayed sand dollars, starfish and little shark jaw. Lots of fun to make but extremely stressful to deliver. Worried about scratching it and the customers reaction, since he’s an amazing taxidermist and his attention to detail second to none. Well they loved it. Just need to make some trim pieces for baseboard and this one is a wrap.

Thanks for looking

Awesome. What do you use for a finish? Is it an epoxy?

Thanks everyone!

@burldog yes it’s an epoxy finish, I learned a lot by the time the finish was done.
