Thanks Tom!

The purple has actually turned much darker color over the last couple of years as the wood has aged. Not quite so violet, so it maches the orange of the padauk better.

That is gourgous......do you buy your wood online? if so where.

The base on mine is Cedar, I just had some in my shop, but I'd like to build a few more with more exotic woods.

I picked up a couple of 8' 1x6 boards of purpleheart and padauk in Kansas City several years ago at Woodcraft. Very reasonable $$$. They have an online store as well.

It's really not red, that's just how the flash reacted on the pic. The purple is a dark purple and the padauk is actually a very deep orange. Much like these pics I found online. I need to take some better pics of it I guess.

3/8" glear glass, the base is a custom door handle...I'm working right now in a different model, with more round corners, and probalby thicker glass (1/2")
