    Excellent table and i like the design too. Bet your daughter does too. Would love it even more if you took us along for the ride on the balance so we can get some insight into how you do it. The burl veneer makes for an excellent image through the glass. Way too cool to put lamps over. Cant wait to see the coffee table.
    cheers

    Thanks to all for the nice comments.

    Rob, I have quite a few picks from along the way and did not want to bore anyone. If there are specific areas of interest, I would be glad to highlight with 'how I did it' pics.
