New small table - and trying to show the figured wood top

I was rummaging through my "nice pieces of wood to use some day" and came across a chunk of figured maple that the late great Ken Manning (of mini instruments fame) gave. I decided that it would work well in a small table so I put together what I think is a quite elegant little piece. The trick is showing people the amazing figure in the maple top. I finally decided that short of a video, the best way would be to take several pictures from the same vantage point, and rotate the table so the top does its magic. It still isn't as good as actually seeing the changes as you move your head, but is a step in the right direction. The table is about 3 " (7.5 cm) long and the maple is trimmed with ebony.


  1. WOW...it looks wonderful, amazing!

  2. The maple is beautiful and the ebony trim makes it even nicer! Good work.

  3. This table is divine! Love it - and that's not just cause I'm a fellow GVRDer...
