This was a fun project made out of a large Parota (Guanacaste) cross cut slab. The thick slice of Quartz geode has been inlayed into the surface of the table with an LED light installed below.

The light is controlled by remote and has the ability to turn 15 different colors and three different light intensities (white and pink examples in the pics). It can be one color or transition between colors, or turn completely off. It is powered by a small removable power bank, so no power cords needed.

The power bank can be used separately for your phone, iPad, computer, etc. There is a magnetic mounting pad for the power bank under the table, shown in the pics along with a small velcro dot for the remote (no need to keep track of them around the house or add to any clutter).

The table legs are 16” high, antique brass finished industrial steel. Legs are mounted with coated screws for ease of removal if a different style or height is preferred by the end user. The table dimensions are 56”W x 53”T x 3” thick. The top is coated in epoxy. The sides and bottom are sealed then topcoated with Odie’s oil.

I am not a professional photographer, so my apologies, it looks much better in person. I created this table for fun to test an idea and after over 100 hours of labor, will probably not make another anytime soon.

That’s a beautiful table. I love the epoxy finish; it adds so much depth it feels like one could fall right into the top. The lighted geode and power bank are cool features too. Fantastic work.
