A small table made with left over Mahogany and walnut inlay. This is more a skill builder than anything else. The build was challenging but fun. The style is “Heinz 57” I guess… I took elements from various styles and designed my own based on the skills I wanted to try out.
The main styles that influenced me in this design are; Chippendale, Hepplewhite, Shaker and Sheraton. The finish is Water base stain with 7 coats sprayed lacquer and a rubbed wax top coat.

Nice table TJ…...Your title brought back memories of a mongrel dog that I had named Heinz 57 : ) LOL

Nice project, and I like your shop also, maybe just a little tool envy though.
