Very nice! Is it veneered or are some parts solid mahogany?
Everything is veneered, except the ebony accents.The pedestal is made of 1/8" mdf joined by the boat building technique called stitch and glue. I learned it at Marc Adam's School of Woodworking.

That's not a technique I was familiar with before your post. I watched a couple of YouTube videos on this as it applies to boat building. It would be interesting if you have any intermediate photos to share as you were forming the table base.

I don’t have any of this one in progress. But I do have one of a new form I am playing with. It is a mock up only so I used 1/8” bending ply rather than 1/8” mdf.
After this step, I go and paint the inside of the form with epoxy.
Then I mix epoxy with wood flour to form a peanut butter consistency and push this onto and into the seams on the inside.
Then let it sit for the prescribed time for your epoxy to set, usually overnight.
Carefully cut a top and bottom to fit inside the openings. AT THIS STEP I ALSO FIT CROSS BRACES AT SEVERAL PLACES INSIDE SO IT DOESN’t COLLAPSE WHEN YOU APPLY THE VENEER.
Cut off the wires and fill the joints from the outside using the peanut butter and wait for set/up.
Then use a file to level all seams and you are ready for veneer or faux finish.
I am also showing another shape.
This process opens some great possibilities.
