This one is Curly Cherry and Old-Growth Birdseye. I found the wood was so figured that I had to keep simplifying the design so it didn’t look “tacky”. Inside is a cove-cut removeable tray framed in cherry and floated with brass pins.

I’m out of wows. Beautiful. And again it’s great what you did with the inside. Sweet.

Yo Ryan, you got talent.
I love that coved tray. Do you mind sharing how you cut it. (Router Jig?).
And you are right, that is almost a little too much figure (but then again not).

Great wood. You are quite lucky to find something like that. A great presentation piece.

with that much figure only a simple design would work, anything else would take away from it. I’m a big fan of simple lines but using wood that makes people look and want to touch it.
It’s beautiful
