Here is a table I made, the top is veneered with a ribbon stripe mahogony, fiddleback maple and the center is a maple burl along with the floating bottom shelf then I inlayed black ebony to separate the different veneers and to really help them stand out!

Beautiful work, Erik. You were right on point with the ebony strips …..they really make the contrasting woods pop. Really nice 4-way book match on the center section.

I’m interested in knowing how you did the border. I’m assuming you didn’t have a wide board. Did you glue several pieces together to get the grain to wrap around like that?
