A few more chunks of wood I turned into another coffee table. This one I tried the butterfly thingies on a couple of the cracks. All maple…...

Another very good looking table, as usual. Your butterflies look pretty good on there as well. Excellent job. Mel

Woof you have some great figure on some of these slabs. I like the base with the natural hump facing up. Great work.

Great looking table and nice job on the Dutchmans. I’ll bet it was challenging achieving the proper balance when attaching the top.

Thanks guys. HFB, I have a lot of work getting it all level. First the bottom has to be flat. Then I turn it over and with a leveling jig with my plunge router, scoop out the middle fitting setting. The middle piece, I just have to make sure each end is parallel. I made a bandsaw jig for that. Then the top must be flat, then turn it over and plunge router, or flatten the bottom of the top, whatever is needed. Then just put it together, lol, yea, getting them flat level, is a chore, but isn’t it all…......
