Cherry box with walnut splines and a spalted hickory top. I came across a similar top somewhere and always wanted to mimic it when I found the right board. A friend painted the sky, setting sun and a few birds…everything else is the hickory.
Shellac and wax with some Brusso hardware…my lady likes it….what do you all think?

Thanks for looking

I like the contrast between the cherry and maple, and the spalting is gold!
