Named by my three year old daughter, this table is maple with sapele butterflies. Spent approximately 8 years hand chiseling the butterflies, Filled the cracks with epoxy, and contracted the base. Finished with Danish oil.

Great project and I’m happy to be on to the next…

-- How did you learn to do this? One mistake at a time...

coffee tables come and go but this one isn’t going anywhere and for 2 reasons. #1 – too heavy to lug around #2 – too beautiful to let it go anywhere

Great Job !!
