Very interesting. The parquetry on top is almost like looking through the top and down onto the legs. Clever combination.

My first thought was… wow cool top. And then I noticed the legs were just as cool. Awesome job.

Great looking Tea Stand. Excellent design. In case you didn’t know Parquetry is geometric shapes & Marquetry is floral or picture designed in veneers.
