I had been thinking about this table idea for a long time. It just so happened that my sister was in need of a dining room table. It is mostly maple with walnut accents, and a mixture of stains. The inlay in the top is really a 4’’ walnut board turned on edge. It hangs down through the table and makes up the skirt (sorry no picture of that). The legs have two thin walnut bands inlayed. The removable legs are dovetailed into the skirt and held in place with bolts. If anyone is looking for a simple table to build, this one is incredibly strong due to the skirt board.

Very beautiful piece of table. The way you inserted the inlay (through the top) is unique, one of a kind that I ever knew.
Great job!

Awesome way to do the inlay. My only concern would be wood movement. Have you had it finished for a while? If so, what did it do through the seasons?
