Gary, Iím totally stunned by your work! I got a kick out of your comment ďI have a vertical jig I made to try to joinery on the Stinger, but it's a bit too finicky for me.Ē Your work looks extremely ďfinickyĒ to me, and I mean that in a good way.

Thanks again, guys. :) I tell you, the OCD neurons were not happy with the way some things turned out, but I learned years ago that the art of woodworking is learning to hide your mistakes. And there were plenty. Iíve also learned not to point them out!

Beautiful heirloom work Gary!

I'm curious how wide the board was for the top? Looking at the grain, I can't see where 2 boards were joined so it looks like 1 really wide board.

I cannot speak for how the OP did his work, but I will mention that careful attention when choosing material can often permit a multi-piece panel to appear to be one wide board. Too many folks just glue boards together without spending time (and money) to get the best appearance. A little thing like that can take a very nice project and turn it into a "wow" project. The first step in finishing is choosing the material. ;)

For the record, I'm personally a major fan of using wide material whenever possible. One piece is my goal; two is acceptable; three can be fine for a wider table if necessary. I don't prefer to use a lot of separate boards for a table surface when it can be avoided.

Thanks!

They were from single pieces of lumber. The rough board was 20 1/4Ē wide. I got them from Chris Vickers at Somerton Ridge Hardwoods. https://somertonridgehardwoods.com/#...1-3e6206791fc6

His prices are really good, and he keeps/gets wide stock especially for CNCers. I met him because one of the Sign Finishing 101 classes was held on his premises. Heís a Cobra owner, and has the most amazing shop setup Iíve ever seen. It was a couple years ago, and Iím still drooling over those tools! If you canít get to VA, youíll have to organize your own motor freight, I think. Heís a member on these forums, but his info is on his website.

Chris is a great source for material! When I was at his place for TR's sign gilding class a couple years ago, I came home with a lot of material. :)

Thanks for confirming Gary. I was curious because I've worked with Sapele quite a bit but never ran across a board that wide. Looks like there's a new website on the way for Somerton Ridge Hardwoods so I'll keep my eye out for it.
