Worked on this a little at a time over the last year. Kind of a “discovery” piece, I had made the lid on its own as practice for inlay and then the legs were first-time practice (really expensive practice) legs. The Macassar trim was a great way to use a highly checked section of the board I have that would be difficult to make anything else out of.

The real hold up was the trim, the router table I posted a while back I made specifically to solve the safety problem routing the edges of the trim, but then got carried away doing finger joints with it.

I really like the top inlay and the legs. Your wood choice makes the whole thing look a little busy to me, but overall a nice cabinet.

Pretty wild wood combo! And I love that inlay on the top—outstanding work there!

Intersting design and wood colour. Beautiful marquetry on top.

An artful piece that can become the focus of design aesthetic! It certainly can’t be placed just anywhere, but that’s what makes it unique. Looks to be beautifully executed. Well done!

Very interesting use of a variety of woods. For a “practice” piece I’d say you did a fine job!
