I was motivated for the inlay pattern by a picture in an article about using dividers by Steve Latta in the Aug. 2014 issue of Fine Woodworking. The woods I used are Peruvian walnut (top), American walnut (legs), English sycamore (lines, leaves) and padauk. It’s small: height 23.5”, width 15.5”, depth 8.5”. Finish: 4 coats of shellac, 1 polyurethane topcoat, wax.

Wonderful display of artistry and top notch craftsmanship. Can I get lessons when I finally decide to tackle inlay?

Congratulations on a beautiful project.

small, graceful details always catch my eye. This top is very appealing.
