Once again I was contracted by the office of the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force (in the Pentagon) to build a retirement coffee table for Retired CMSAF James Cody. He wanted his made of solid Mahogany and Cherry ONLY and stained black. One end got his office seal a little different than Ret CMSAF James Roy, the lettering is different and it’s only made of the 2 woods. The other end got the old Hap Arnold Wings. The plaques are done in the Intarsia art form I enjoy, it’s ALL scroll saw! The stain is Classic Black Satin. As always, Thanks for looking!

WOW. You run with some high company! Nice work. Stained/dyed black? A waste of nice wood, IMO.

Excellent work!
Beautiful results.
Did you use a CNC?
If so, what software?

A truly deserving tribute to a life time of service. Being a brat of a retired USAF MSGT I know the sacrifices he made for his family and country. Thank you!

I agree, but customers get what they want, right?

The art work was done with a scroll saw. Every piece cut out and put together like a puzzle. It’s known as Intarsia.

Terrific work! I especially love the detail on the seal. You have given me inspiration. Are those drawers? Do they open? Thanks for sharing. ;)
