I call this my “Large Flickering Lone Star” Oak table. The pattern on this 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.

The type of wood is listed on the bottom of the table from the center out. (1) “Redwood Burl” from California, (2) “Smoke Tree” from Missouri, (3) “Tulipwood” from Brazil, (4) “Sumac” from upstate New York,(5)”Zaracote” from Mexico, (6) “Crab Apple” from US, (7) “Bloodwood” from South America, (8) “Birch” from US, (9) “Shedua” from Africa, (10) “Ash” from Missouri, (11) “Purpleheart” from Central or South America, (12) “Satinwood” from Brazil, (13) “Lacewood” from Australia, (14) “Cottonwood” from Missouri, (15) Boire” from Africa, (16) “Poplar” from US, (17) “Wenge” from West Africa, (18) “Hackberry” from Missouri, (19)”Bubinga” from Africa, (20) “Tree Of Heaven” from US but native to China, (21) “Mahogany” from Central America, (22) “Maple” from Eastern US, (23) “Walnut” and (24) “Oak” from Missouri.

I made this table in 2000 and got it finished in 2001. It is large table number 18. On the bottom I signed it, listed the wood, dated it and put the number of the table. As with everything I make I can find flaws in each item, be it box or table. It’s not perfect but you’ll look a long time to find a prettier table.

Go to my ”Shop Polices” and “Profile” page to see my return policy and other information on how I make these. To see other tables I’ve made, click on “Tables” or whatever gets your interest under “Sections in this shop”. The “Home” page itself can be rather confusing with everything mixed up. The “Sections in this shop” lets me show you all like items together as a unit.

I can ship it UPS in two boxes with insurance for $1100. or you can pick it up here.

Payment can be made using Pay Pal for immediate shipment, money order or check. Checks will have to clear before shipment is made. Pick-up or Missouri residents, include 5.725% sales tax.
