My neighbor, Laszlo Sallay, exhibited at ICFF this year and asked me to design a base for one of the table tops that he wanted to display in the show.

Laszlo is an amazingly talented woodworker who does a lot of great veneer finishes, restoration work and came up with this new design on wood called Shagreen.  Shagreen is basically a faux sharkskin-type look and texture but is 100% wood.

Here's a photo of the table base that I made:

I also made some knobs for one of the cabinets, which can be seen in the photo below:

When I was at the show on Saturday, Laszlo was getting a great response and there were a lot of people in his booth.  Check out more of Laszlo's great woodwork and finishes on his website.
