This table was an in depth project that was motivated as a gift for my wife's friend who is now raising her granddaughter. It was constructed using Ipe and Purpleheart for the table top, while a piece of acrylic fit into the center o the top. The top then hinges onto the box of the table into which LED bars and a clock kit were installed. The legs were turned on a lathe, and then mounted into the box. The most challenging aspect in the build was inlaying the Purpleheart highlights into the Ipe border.
