Thanks for the comments. One question that was my first time using sycamore is it always that colorful (reds and yellows) or is that just because of the spalting?

The sycamore that I have used was not spalted so it lacked the dark streaks but it was quarter sawn and has incredible grain. Some refer to it as American lacewood and the name fits. Each board did vary in color - light yellow to darker brown and the "lace" grain came and went on each board. I like the wood and will use it again. Nice table, by the way.
