I made a small side table out of mahogany, maple and zebrawood. All the mahogany came out of an 8/4 board and was re-sawed down…the legs have a sock-foot made out of zebrawood. The inlays and drawer front is maple. The finish is BLO topped with shellac rubbed to a medium gloss finish on the top and satin everywhere else. The drawer is pinned with maple dowel since it’s so tiny (only 2 1/4” tall and ~8” wide or so. Took a couple of months working on and off to complete, very happy with the way it turned out.

Beautiful piece, the inlays take it over the top as well as the sock-feet.

All, thank you very much for the compliments! I’ve got a second one under way…hopefully it won’t take me as long. Made quite a few jigs to get the first one done.
