What I did over the long weekend

Turned these e-bay finds...
...into this side table for the living room.

The top still needs finishing. I was going to use just polyurethane but apparently since it's spalted burl maple (which is why it has that marbling in the wood) I need to use shellac first. Or so the internets tell me. In any case, once it's finished the marbling will be even more pronounced.

I was inspired by this and this. And George Nakashima. And probably by watching back to back episodes of Design Star on Hulu.
