Burr Elm Table with Magazine Shelf

This is an example of an item made to maximize the impact of a particular piece of wood, in this case a stunning slice of burr elm.  Larger holes are patched with small bits of burr and the myriad tiny, irregular holes are filled with so called “cold-cast brass” i.e. brass powder made into a paste with polyester resin which, when set hard, can be cut back and polished.
