This is a small coffee table I constructed without a plan and out of scrap in my shop. The body of the table is made out of cherry with walnut accents and trim. The top is made out of maple, walnut (some pieces with sapwood), cherry and honey locust. It was just a random pattern. The accents on the legs are star trails that I drew and cut out on my bandsaw. Had to really watch my fingers lol. I used my usual finish of poly, mineral spirits, and boiled linseed oil with a final coat of wax at the end. Boy I love that finish! As before thanks for your eyes and comments.

That, my friend is one beautiful piece of art. The finish is gorgious, the selection of wood – incredable. I love the star trails and the three dark dowels on the side.
