9 Table Lg Flickering Star Wal Brown Top
This is a straight on look at the top of the table. The finish brightens the wood, and brings out the color. It’s like putting water on a rock, or polishing it, you can see the beauty of it then.
I call this my “Large Flickering Lone Star” Brown tone Walnut table. The pattern on the table is the “Lone Star” quilt pattern. The flickering part comes because I alternated light and dark wood, which gives it the illusion of movement. You can sometimes have a light headed feeling when you see it; it plays with your eyes. The table stands 30” tall and is 47” wide. There are over 6000 pieces on the entire table. The pieces are used over the edge and onto the pedestal and feet of the table. The table is finished in its natural color with 6 or 8 coats of varnish. After the varnish hardens for at least a month, I level it and buff it to a high shine. The pieces are a bit over 3/16" thick, glued onto a Baltic Birch base, so they hold up much better than a thin veneer.
