This round side table is walnut with quarter sawn sycamore inlay.

I love that walnut on the top, and the shelf below… it is gorgeous!

I also really like the simple, yet elegant curves of the inlay.

Any plans to do another one that is a bit more neutral on top to highlight the inlay?

Again, I really like the table, it’s just that it seems that the walnut and the inlay are both competing for attention.

Thanks, I’ve done this table in cherry and ash as well, and used both walnut and sycamore for the inlay. The combinations make for different looks and speak to your question about competing …..........

That is a beautiful table, and made from my favorite wood. I always try to incorporate the sap wood in my walnut projects. Very nice work.
