These tables are 24” square and 24” tall. Made of cherry. The inlay of the dragonfly is walnut and the Gingko leaves are figured maple.

I used my Shopbot Desktop CNC machine and a process that Randy Johnson, former editor of American Woodworker, developed to create the inlays. People, including fellow woodworkers, are amazed with the registration and the fine detail of the inlays.

Otherwise the tables are pretty basic Shaker style tables.

I’ve always wanted to do inlays but never found a good way to do it. I guess I need a CNC machine.
Very nicely done!
