i built this table for my friend’s new apartment. he has a couch with an unusual curved front. the curved edge of the table follows the couch’s curve. it made for a good excuse to play with the bandsaw. plus, this was my first attempt at an inlay, so it was a good learning expirience too. it’s made of walnut and poplar. the pictures don’t show it well, but the finish on the top turned out really nice(7 coats of poly).

Really neat piano shape on the top.

I really like the wood color combinations.
