We do furniture as well...this table was originally made out of pine wood. We added a new beveled top and painted it in a checkered board pattern (which I must say was not an easy task to figure out for the layout) My artistic brain did not want to function in Math mode..very difficult task. Anyway, we finally figured it out and then finished it off with a tortoise shell inlay around the edges. Very cool and one happy client!
