Merry Christmas Ginger.
Well, as you realize Christmas is all done and dusted here down under. Only 365 days till the next'n.
Merbau eh? That will be one heavy and solid top and you can dance on it with gay abandon, specially if you have used, (as I do cos I have some left over), a flooring grade varnish.
How do I know Merbau is heavy you may ask? Well, I made a model Murray river paddle steamer (My avatar) from Merbau and Tasmanian Oak. Heavy as, but the timber was off cuts from helping my son do his pool deck = free, I like free. Oh, and many of the real ones were of RedGum, also a heavy timber. So sort of fits.
Good job, enjoy the table and what ever food is place upon it.
