So this is the table with some Blackwood that I dredged from my stocks and prepared. The border is Wenge. The finish is burnished oil. I think I'll settle for this, its what I wanted in the first place!

Rob

Yes, that's the way to go. The two colors are in harmony and not competing with each other like with the other species you first tried.

I agree! That's much better:thumbsup2:
Is the top's panels floating? I'm curious to how you've joined it all, Rob.
Cheers!

Hi Okami,

The top panels are "floating" on dominoes. I used 5mm domi's single width cut in the panel board and double cut in the borders. For the centre, I use 5mm domi's as well. Here I cut the mortises with the centre strip clamped to one panel and then introduce the domi's through that combined mortise into the second panel and clamp the top together. Works well. The mortises are a x2 cut on each side of the strip. I have done this on box lids before to create the panel effect. There's no reason why you can't glue the strip to one of the panels here as you are allowing for movement by using a wider mortise in all three components. Panels and strip. (I guess one hopes that Wenge and Zebrano move at similar rates.) The rest of the build is just standard domino joinery.

Regards,

Rob
