I’ve been working on this for several weekends (in between my curbside scavanging episodes). It is solid cherry, except for the walnut drawer fronts.
Not having a lathe, but wanting to do something a little decorative with the legs, I adapted an idea from a project I saw posted here in which the corners of the legs were bandsawed off. In my version, I just used a cove bit in my router table. By the way, since I had no thick stock (purchased the cherry on e-bay – can’t get it here), the legs are made of two 4/4 boards glued together and trimmed to size on the table saw.
The inlay on the top is InLace epoxy, which I had never heard of until Cajunpen Bill talked about using it on a project. I was curious, and had to give it a try. It’s not the easiest stuff in the world to work with, but it came out pretty nice in the end.
