Again we have a featured piece that follows the topic of a recent guild meeting presentation topic.  Last month it was Mike Zwolinski's article "Bentwood Leg Table" following the guild meeting topic of Lamination of Curved Furniture Components.

This month, compliments of Jim Tartaglia,  the featured piece follows the topic of the February 2020 guild meeting on Advanced Veneering Techniques.  In fact, Jim's table top shows a perfect example of the sunburst design.  And Jim carries his veneering techniques further by overcoming chatoyance.  Building a curved front also had its challenges.

Besides veneering, there is a lot here for the woodworker, including bricking for the curved front, dovetails, and a novel approach to shop-made banding.  Jim presents an orderly description of his process and one worthy of reading
