Made on and off over the course of a year the table is made of a “bricklaid” poplar apron covered with a bookmatched pomele sapele veneer, sapele legs inlaid with maple sandshaded flowers, holly and ebony stringing, ebony feet and birdseye maple fields. The top is mdf veneered with african crotch mahogany pie cut fields, anegre crossbanding and a sandshaded curly maple and dyed veneer fan. Total of about 257 peices. Very proud of this piece even though its flaws remain obvious to me. Only posted a couple of photos due to the photo size limits. more pics on request through some other means.
