A long but extremely fun journey. The table is shown in my other project/blog. Chairs now completed and delivered. Wood is Jatoba with ebony inlays and an olive wood burl veneer on the top of the table cabinet. All loose tenon joinery.

Thanks for looking. Enjoy.

Beautiful work! The jatoba is wondrous! It’s one of my favorite woods to look at, but just really hard on the tools.

Beautiful work and a huge amount of effort and patience to construct such a wonderful table and all those chairs. I like the Greene and Greene flacour of the chairs along wih the ebony inlay. I visited your table posting as well. Wow.

That is a beautiful set and I know how much it weighs. Jatoba is a wonderful wood that I don’t see others use very often. It will be even more beautiful as it ages and reddens.

Great Job!
Unless one has worked with Jatoba, they would not appreciate just how difficult this wood is to “work.”
