Maple Burl coffee table with stone inlay.
Massive burl cap! I picked this up a few years back and had it in dry storage till I felt it was dry enough to work with…worth the wait, the burl is amazing! I inlaid stone into the natural voids. Worked on this one for about a year and a half…
This has a finished size of 7’ 8” x 7’ 8”...a huge piece but I just couldn’t bear the thought of cutting it into smaller pieces.
