It kinda looks like plaid. Oak, Mahogany, and bloodwood.

Very “manly” indeed. I’m really curious as to how you did the inlay/striping. Striking work.

It’s very nice and unusual. Nice work.

This table almost made its way through the back wall of my garage on a few occasions. This was made when all I had was a table saw. The wide parts of the inlay took forever to cut with an 1/8” wide saw blade. The rest was cake. All of the joints are dowelled butt joints. The finish is polished polyeurethane.
