two maple coffee tables in the works

two maple coffee tables in the worksI've made a few of these "flowing grain" tables over the past couple of years.  Not many, primarily because the process takes a particularly long time, doesn't always come out just right, and, obviously, in the case of a dining table, the diner would end up with a severe case of knocked knees.

But lately, we've been back at it, and I just can't get enough of 'em.  These two maple coffee tables, both have the flowing grain pattern down one side.  We just completed sanding them yesterday, now ready for inspection and a couple of days of finishing. 

The maple looks a little dull here, but has been turning out quite amazing after finishing.
