INTRODUCTION
.
.

This is a Side-Table/Stool which I made a couple of years ago and have now Retro-fitted with Celtic Inlays. These were made using Bamboo skewers which we use here in Italy to barbecue Spiedini and exactly fit a 1/8” router bit channel.
The core is Fir with Cherry edges and the top and sides are covered with 1cm Walnut. I made a large Finger-joint jig with angled attachment specially for this (see one of my previous Projects). I liked the idea of trying finger-joints with two contrasting woods.
I have made several pieces similar to this, which is a little less than 12” high, and find them invaluable, particularly when we entertain. They are equally useful for parking drinks and as extra seating, children love them. I finish them with oil and varnish so wet glasses don’t stain them. Anyway after a couple of years use you can sand and refinish them in an hour.
