    16 Segment Sunburst in Curly Bubinga

    Here's a table top I did in veneer for clients Penny and Jack. They had this antique tilt top table but the veneer on it was damaged and stained. They wanted to replace the veneer and chose curly bubinga - and they wanted it laid in a sunburst pattern.

    Anyway, it was a challenge but I think it came out nice. The finish is lacquer which I rubbed out.

    They were pleased with the result.

    mike,

    judging by the look on their face, i'd say pleased is an understatement.

    that top looks fabulous, great job all around. no pun intended

    Nice? Only Nice? Mike I think that is a gross understatement on your part. Its totally AWESOME. You really are a craftsman. Way to go. Would not ask for a tutorial on that its a few years away for me. And if those customers are not happy tell them you will send the family round to see them. And send the table to me.

    Had to go back and have another look, then I thought gee who can actually use a table like that. It seems to perfect to put anything on. I dont think I would let my family near it never mind use it. Really nice work and what great wood veneer.

    Thanks for your kind comments, everyone. Attached is a closeup of the center of the table, with the contrast enhanced somewhat so you can see the figure in the veneer. Note how the elements form circular designs on the table. You only see these designs when you look close - when you just glance at the table, all you see is the burgundy color and the swirl of the veneer.


    This picture was taken before I put the lacquer on. The only thing on the veneer is the sanding sealer.

    Boy Mike, that is sure nice, a guy could look into that pattern all day long!

    How thick is the veneer on something like that?

    Did you cut the veneer yourself?

    Super job!
