Parota or Guanacaste, Side table I finally built from a slab of wood that was hauled back from Puerto Vallarta last winter.
The place I bought the wood from through in the four scrap pieces so that I could claim that it was a unassembled table when I went through customs. Epoxied some Teak stabilizer inlays to prevent splitting, finished with a few coats of Arm r Seal.
