This is a dining table I made for a friend of mine at my church. He has done a lot of missionary work in Honduras over the years. On these trips he brought back purple heart, red heart and green heart boards. I’ve seen purple heart but I had never heard or seen red and green heart before. I do not know if that is what they are or not. The inserts are made out of these boards. The rest of the table is made out of rift cut solid red oak. The grain is a lot straighter than rotary cut oak. The top is made with tongue and groove joints. The table frame has lap joints and is screwed to the top with Kreg screws. It is finished with 4 coats of natural Watco oil applied wth 400 grit WD sand paper and 3 coats of paste wax applied with#0000 steal wool. It took me 48 hours to complete and I charged $1400. I was pleased with how it turned out. Hope you enjoy seeing it.
