Nice looking Gene. You do some very unique projects. Is that for home use?

And did you have to do anything special to allow for the wood movement?

Also, what kind of sealer/finish will you use?

But should I stop now, I'm on a roll?

Good Luck
Dave

Gene , you have out done yourself. You swing from the skinny branches of design with grace.

I would love to know how you tackled the expansion differences of the 2 materials. Is there a way that you are limiting the movement to the edges and attempting to keep the center bonded?

What kind of reinforcement is in the dovetails?

Very cool look, Gene. I would love to play with something like that.:thumbup:

Very cool Gene. Just in time for Octoberfest, a manly table appears. Looks like a sturdy resting place for cold one!
How many pieces of rebar are tying the top together?
