Update #1 Table top glue up, and pictures of the wood

Dear Victoria,
I have gotten the top glued up, and I took a few shots of the process. I thought that I'd share them with you. I'll be cutting the top to shape tomorrow, after the glue has set up. I'll send you some pictures of the base when it arrives. With any luck, it will be in time for delivery by thanksgiving.

Update #2 The top cut to shape

I have cut the top to shape, it came out wonderfully! I'll be cleaning up the edges later, and profiling them. This is some amazing wood!

Update #3 Table is complete!

Dear Victoria,
The base arrived yesterday, and I finished the top as well. I assembled the table this morning, and it looks great! I can deliver the table this Saturday if that works for you. If you like what you see, please send the final payment like you did before so my delivery expenses are covered. I look forward to meeting you soon.
