I built these two end tables for my mother as a late christmas/birthday gift. the wood used was quilted maple and paduak. the quilt is hard to see in the pictures but is truly high figure. the inlays on the front of the drawers are recessed in 1/8” and were accomplished by hand and lots of patience. they also became the most time consuming on the whole project. the stems used were made from rosewood. it was a real pain killer not letting the paduak stain into the maple while sanding and finishing causing a reddish maple. but everything stayed crisp and clean and was well worth the 112 hrs it took to complete. a year prior i made the coffee table to match which i hope to post soon. now she has a nice coffee and end table set.

just wanted to share this with you all.

THAT is love. Speaks not only to the quality of the piece, but the people involved.

These are amazing…I could look at them all day. Lucky Mom
I’m wondering, though, how did you manage to not have the paduak bleed into the maple?
