Table – 60”x 40”x 30” White Oak. ( Top – tongue and groove six pieces. Legs four 3/4” pieces laminated, and 3” square. 4” aprons. I put the base together with pocket hole screws, and metal corner brackets. Stained with Golden Oak, and Special Walnut, with a polyurethane finish…The inlays are American Walnut, Brazilian Walnut, and a piece of Zebra wood in the center. The design on the legs and apron were cut in using a router, and a pattern from CMT.. Thanks for looking

A beautiful table. The inlays and decorative carving make it extra special. I can’t imagine doing that carving with a router. Nice job all around.

M.Bob, nothing to be embarrased about on this one. Great looking table. Like the broach chamfer with the cheek cut accents. Love that surface inlay as well ! JB

Thanks for the comments…Doc I did float the top… gfadvn…The carving was done using templates from CMT—thus making it very easy to do…One thing I’m not and that is a wood carver…Not that I haven’t tried.

All I can say is WoW! Top to bottom a very nice table. Good proportions and the inlays are sweet!
Thanks for sharing.
Well done.

Thanks for all your comments…The inlays were a challenge—at first I made the narrow inlays with Maple…the wife thought it would look better with a dark wood…that.s when the Brazilian Walnut came in to play.. I also think it looks better with the dark wood…..Learning curve—-always run it by the wife first….LOL

Turned out great! Inlays and routing on legs were a very nice touch to ‘dress’ it up. Beautiful job
