Coffee table with leaf inlay. The base is cherry and top is curly maple. Six total leaves – 2 black walnut, 2 oak, 2 cherry. The base is finished with tung oil and shellac. The top is finished with Polycrylic (first time using this – wanted tough finish that does not darken with age – time will tell).

Absolutely beautiful work of art, indeed. I too, love the wrapped leaf over the edge of the table. I have always liked this style of furniture/inlay. Still planning to incorporate it into my pieces one day. Welcome aboard. Glad you are here.

I second the “Wow”, the inlays looks look amazing, how thin did you cut them out, they look as thin as a leaf, great work

Fantastic and that folded leaf is out of this world. I wish I had such talent!

Nice! The table itself is great, but the inlays take it to the next level!

The table, without the leaves, is very nice. But the leaves really makes it a work of art. I’ll bet everyone that sees it will check them out. Well done.

That is an exceptional piece!
The inlays are gorgeous and I really like the over the edge one!

Reminds me of the one David Marks did with one Maple leaf inlay.

Wow so awesome. The leaf inlays are stunning!! What do you think about making the leaves from the wood they represent? Oak leaves, walnut leaves, and cherry leaves, just a thought!! The polycrylic will hold up over time. I use acrylic poly on about 95% of my projects for my clients and it holds up well over time. It won’t leave water rings, it’s tough as nails when it 100% full cures in 30 days, and is so easy to clean. Such a great job on this table!!!!!!
