I made 3 of these tables, not sure if they are categorized as couch, entryway, or hall tables. I’m still learning my joinery, but i tried to vary the designs (apron, legs) the Maple leaf came from a tree in my backyard. The tables are mostly Maple/Mahogany. Inlays are Wenge and Padouk. When i did the layout for the Maple leaf, I found there was an almost herringbone pattern in the Padouk. So i made sure to keep everything oriented correctly and the Wenge made great stems/veins.

Those are some nice tables. Great job on the inlaid leaves and the curly maple really makes the tops.

Very nice work.
and welcome to Lumberjocks!
Interestingly, one of my first projects years ago was kind of like this.
You have some fine details. I like the apron / leg treatment, and of course the inlay (or is it marquetry?)

BTW if you crop your photos just a bit before you submit them they will usually display right side up.

Again, welcome.

I like the floating top. Also the wood and grain orientation for the inlay takes it to another level!

Awesome. Truly amazing work. Let’s me know how much I have yet to learn. Welcome to lj’s.

PS If you’re using a phone take all of your pictures horizontally like you did the last shot and they should orient properly.
