I made this table for my wife, it is made from Red Oak, Poplar drawer sides, and Red Mahogany inlay. First time I have done any inlay work and I must say, I am very pleased with the way it came out and wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. I thought about using walnut for the inlay, but the mahogany definitely is a better match with the red oak. I finished with 8 coats of thinned Tung Oil and still have a coat of wax to put on when the oil fully cures. The boxes in the last photo are not mine, these were made by my Uncle who is now 92 years young and had just recently gave up his wood working. The boxes he has made are cherished in our family and I am glad to have a few of them, he did exceptional work.
