This was quite a fun project to have a go at making. I wanted a bit of a show piece to try and get into a local wood gallery (haven’t taken it down yet)
It is American black walnut body and top with a Maple inlay and Maple brackets to give it a floating effect.

I like the look. And the inlay is very nice touch.
Did you consider painting the brackets flat black to hide them some more?

Nice looking table. I enjoy working with walnut and utilizing shop made inlays from maple.

I did toy with the idea of making them blend in using walnut but i like the contrast with the maple and although they are hidden i still see it as a key feature. I had it on display at a craft fair yesterday and everyone who looked at it bent down to look underneath. Everyone wants to know how it works so it helps that they stand out

I can understand why people take an look at it upon seeing it.
A very impressive, but simple and concise piece of workmanship.

Very nice table. I especially like the plugs in the corners of your inlay. Thanks for the shot of the underside.

Nice job very clean. It has a really nice look to it. I like the inlay and the grain in the walnut.
