A couple years back in high school I made this coffee table with an Ohio State inlay in it. The top is solid maple, the legs and trim are walnut, and the Ohio State block “O” is made from padauk, poplar, walnut, and red oak. While constructing the table I used pocket hole joinery to build the frame. For the top I used a plunge router to hog out most of the material where the inlay would go. To get the crisp corners in the inlay I used an exacto knife and several chisels. It is finished with 3 coats of satin lacquer.
