this is an end table of walnut with yellowheart feet and top. The pics dont really do the yellowheart true justice. It is one of the most beautiful and iridescent wood in the shop here. Hope you enjoy it! Craven

Love it. Super clean, beautiful figure on the yellowheart, and the contrast with the walnut works really well. Favorited :)

It’s a beautiful table.

Are you concerned about possible wood movement in the yellowheart?

Really really nice! I love the crotch figure on the aprons. I have only worked with Yellowheart in small sizes for inlay or pens. I can only imagine how it looks on a larger scale. Nice book match too.

Thanks for all the comments folks! As for your question Charlie, I hoped to reduce wood movement of the Yellowheart top by laminating it to 3/4 in plywood and planing the thickness of the Yellowheart to just 3/16 in. Time will tell ultimately! Thanks again! (p.s. Matt, if you ever get an opportunity to use Yellowheart in a broader application, I am confident you would love the effect in person!)
