Built a cherry coffee table with mesquite trim and highlights for a friend. I used a mesquite center board and breadboard ends with turquoise inlays in the natural cracks and fissures within the mesquite. I also placed raised “butterflies” on the top in mesquite as well.
When preparing the top I made tenons with shoulders for each board and then glued them up. A lot less frustrating to do then after the fact.
The endcaps worked out great. I then cut a small dado between the breadboard end and the top to place a thin strip of raised wood and finished off the ends with ebony pegs.
