What a bitchin’ table! Man that is awesome… How long did it take to make? Where did you get the Idea for the design?

Thanks to all for your nice comments. The table took me approximately 150 hours to complete. The steam bending of the black inlay gave me the most trouble. It is made of white ash that’s been ebonized . The thin strips kept snapping on me in the tight curves. Building the 2 axis router jig for the 2 different sized ovals was also quite challenging. Joining the sides of the drawers with sliding dovetails in a curved facade was another interesting challenge. I got the original idea for the marquetry from a beer coaster that I brought back from Prague. My wife is Czech and so is Jan Bulis and Gambrinus happens to be his favorite beer (and also mine!)

Excellent work. The color contrasts are stunning. I love the exposed spline ends in the table edge. Keep it up.

This is a gorgeous table. I love the contrast between the mahogany and the sycamore. The details of the piece are absolutely stunning.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful Table. How did you decide on the woods you used, they contrast perfectly?

Being a Canuck fan doesn’t prevent me from admiring your work which is excellent. Particularly like the mix of woods and the inlay is fabulous – now about that oh-so-familiar jersey
