I made this curly maple and walnut display table for our local chocolate store Coastal Mist.

I had their logo laser engraved in the top and cut chunk away from the table and splined in walnut just a bit larger so it would appear to coat the table. I shaped the walnut to look like it was dripping down the sides.

The hardest part was drilling a piece to wrap around a leg and shape it to look as though it was oozing down the leg, I also had to create the top molding look in walnut that had to look like it was coated. It was featured on the Travel Oregon Website.

I had a lot of fun making this one.

Wait, ...what?.....How the hell did you do that?

First I thought you had just glued on the walnut. But you say you cut out “chunks”, and splined in walnut afterwards? Wasnt it hard to create a matching counterpart to the chunk?

You also removed a corner, that was being supported by a leg??
How did…? Damn, Im stumped for words.

That is truely an impressive table, that is sure to be a conversations piece for all the customers in the store.
Great job, thanks for sharing.

I am very glad you liked it. While some of the “chocolate” (walnut) was just done as applique-like, the big chunks cut out were splined in and it took a bit to get it all to fit well. It is true that one corner that sits above a leg was cut away, but the splines at different angles made it fit together like a puzzle and made it very strong. The corner is also made up of three different pieces of walnut and the front skirt piece carries across to the next chunk taken out. It was a tremendous undertaking and very fun to tackle.

Thanks for all the great comment. Hope I can continue to impress you guys ;)
