The table was made out of 2 inch curly cherry resulting in the solid look with spectacular grain that the customer wanted. The inlay and drawer trim is Peruvian Walnut. The two drawer fronts are made out of one piece of resawn 2 inch cherry resulting in book matched drawer fronts.

That is some fantastic cherry, and the inlay looks great with it.

I am impressed with your use of the figure. Very appealing. I am starting on a similar project with some equally curly cherry. Fabulous stuff, but a bear to work smoothly. Did you plane or sand? Also, what are the outside dimensions of the table? I’d like to compare the plans I am currently working on to your numbers, considering how well yours turned out.

Ray,
The table is approximately 23”x48”. I found the curly cheery surprisingly easy to work. I first planed the individual boards, glued up the top and then used a thickness sander followed by hand sanding.
