Self explanatory right? All padauk materials. Even the backing is 1/4”x8” pieces floating in place. It’s got dominos, pocket screws and glue. Top is held on by figure 8 fasteners and the glass is laid in place. All my stuff from the 10- years of hoarding gear and uniform stuff. Waiting still on one button. I took pics anyway. Rah!

That is just plain, ya I’ll say it.. beautiful. That wood.. wow. And I know pictures are forgiving but the joinery looks primo. The display shows what you’ve done and how you did it. Thank you for that.
