I started this table about 5 years ago. Other things came up so it got shelved. Last Christmas I decided to pull out all the pieces and finish it. The centre post was turned on the lathe and the Jacobean twist was hand carved.

The veneer on top is camphor laurel and I think walnut burl. I am not sure what the burl veneer is in the centre of the table. The feet on the bottom of the legs are Jarrah to help with the contrast.

The table is finished with Livos counter top oil.

What a beautiful table! I love all the details you put into it, from the wood species, to the carvings, and the overall look of it!
