This project began in Canada at Rosewood studio in the spring of 2007. I attended a class taught by Garrett Hack with my oldest brother. We brought the table home in parts. I did all of the inlay, cockbeading, final assembly and finish in my shop.

Thanks, everyone, the detail work is time consuming, but worth the effort. At times it feels a bit more like building a model rather than woodworking, but I really like the results.

I love Garrett’s furniture, and you did him proud.

This project shows two things (besides the fact that you built an awesome table): you didn’t waste your money and Garrett Hack is a great teacher. Great build.

I keep telling myself that I need to learn how to do detail inlay and your project reminded me to have yet another talk with myself. Nice work.

before i read Garrett Hack I knew it was inspired by him. The morse code inlay and the Fans are very him. Extremly nice work.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone! It’s been a while since I checked LJ’s. Skeeter, thanks for the comment. Garrett and I have gotten to know each other quite well in the past few years. I really enjoy his woodworking design and philosophy. He’s a really great guy, if you ever get a chance to attend a workshop of his, I highly recommend it. The Wisconsin Woodworkers Guild is having him come this November to talk about drawers, I’m already looking forward to it.

did you use a router or scratch stock to do the stringing inlay. I love it
