Ahhhhh! It feels so good to finish a piece that’s taken a while! I usually try to whip through furniture, but on this piece, I had to wait on inlay materials, which was excruciating for me, lol! Anyways, here she is, a stunning live edge curly maple & walnut bench (or coffee table)… I call it, “Within”, my conceptual take on the beauty that lies within nature. The chrysocolla inlay came out particularly well & I love how the legs take on different shapes depending on where you’re viewing the piece from! Hope it finds a home soon so that I’m not tempted to keep her!! ;)

Very nice work, the inlay is an outstanding addition to this sweet table, and adds a nice touch of elegance.

Great job! Just enough inlay to accent the shape without drawing too much attention. Simple but elegant design with a good balance of straight and curved edges. Sure to become an heirloom. Thanks for sharing.

That’s some really nice work. I’m sure it was worth the wait.

Very nice.
