Marquetry is an art, for sure. Very nice table with accent dogwood blooms . I noticed the table edge first. I’m trying to figure out if it is veneer or solid wood, Wenge?

Very nice table. My very first piece of furniture with marquetry on it had very similar dogwood flowers. They are the provincial flower of British Columbia.
Is this double bevel cut on scroll saw?

Wow. Not only great craftsmanship on the marquetry but also a great eye for shading and coloring it. Nice work on the table itself too.
