This is a little twist i did on a decorative laminate pedestal. I basically built the plywood box then jigsawed out an area to insert two 3/4” thick mahogany pcs mitered at the corner. I drew the shape i wanted & started hogging it out freehand with a core box bit in a formica router, eventually getting down to a dremel tool and hand sanding. Then the laminate was fitted around the shape.

Nice work. I have never done inlays. This reminds me of displays I made for a gift shop.
