mbs, what and how did you use to connect the breadboard edge? Love the lines of the piece just not sure I like the marble inlay.

Very nice piece. I like the stone, the veining color acsents the cherry and massaranduba.

Awesome. I love Green & Green, it seems like it would so much fun to build. I’ll have to try one in their style one day.

The bread board ends were secured with floating Mortise and tennons. The proud splines are functional too.

Spline answer – On the main picture you can see a piece of dark wood (masaranduba) that runs between the cherry breadboard end and the hickory top. The masaranduba is about 3/8” deep which acts like a spline to help keep the bottom face of top flat and helps secures the hickory to the cherry.
