Walnut console table.
Made from walnut burl veneer, and two chucks of tree.
here in Boulder we are blessed to have a great lumber yard with local trees cut and dried as lumber. (tcwoods)
I found 2 nice slabs with great crotch figure.

They happened to have some holes perfect for the turquoise inlay.

I cut them and then book matched them.

It has four drawers and no hardware.

Pictures of furniture seem impossible!

Another fun one.

Fantastic work! I’d be interested in hearing about your experiences applying the Turquoise Inlay. Any thoughts or suggestions for those of us who are planning to take the challenge!

Very nice with the inlays. I’m also doing some turquoise inlays in walnut on my current project (a tool chest), and it looks about the same. I used some good quality clear epoxy meant for jewelry work, filed down most of the excess material, then sanded like normal with the orbital. Is your process similar?

I also live near TC Woods. Great place… sad that they’ll be moving soon.

Whats not to like about a great looking table made from figured walnut. I especially like the arch detail. Thanks for sharing.
