I thought it would never get there, but the 373 piece table is finally together and finished. You can find a couple LJ blogs about the inlay banding and I would be happy to share how I did it and what Iused to do anything else. I was lucky to find this beatiful cherry veneer on ebay and I am glad I learned about TransTint dyes because it would have been a real shame to blotch the color with a wipe-on stain. On to the next project!

Great looking job!

I am a big fan of dyes also. It’s about all I use to color wood.

Wow. A gorgeous looking table. I really would like to learn to do veneering like that. I will try it sometime soon I hope.

Thanks to all of you for your comments. The table will be picked up today so I guess it is time to move on to the next project. Working at a weekend-woodworker’s pace, I hope it isn’t too long before I have another completed project to add here. Until then, I’ll keep looking at all the terrific things you other LJs are making!
