The top and apron were scribed tightly to stone. The top is  a center panel with a 3" border.I used MDF to get the scribes right and then transferred the scribe to the border pieces using a router and panel cutter. 

This has been one of my favorites. I have always visualized a civil war wife writing to her husband, off at the war, by candle light here. (I'm a romantic.)
