Here is my kithcen table. I did not make this table I simply refurbished it. The table started life as a floor model in Crate & Barrel and then lived for 5 years in a college house. Needless to say it has seen some rough times. If you look in picture 4 you can sort of see some of the damage that it had sustained.

I used a belt sander and stripped of the top layer of finish down to the mahogany that was underneath the gel stain. I then took some strips of purple heart and inlayed them into the surface as something to break up the top. I used 4-5 coats of polyurethane to finish off the project. I left the table skirt and the legs as the original color as they didn’t have a lot of issues and also I like the two tone look of it.

Thanks for looking.
