This Table is one in a set of 4 entitled “The Elements”. They are aptly entitled, Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water.

In this piece I wanted to do somthing more creative with the base, I have wanted to do a piece for a while with 2 Sumo wrestlers holding up the top. I read that Somo wrestlers draw thier energy and power from the earth, so what better way to desplay this element.

The top is solid Mahogany, to signify the earthy feel and tones, the strips between are solid Paduak and Wenge. the base is hand carved solid Red Oak.

This is another gorgeous post. I assume that Fire is going to be posted in the near term. These really are more works of art than simple woodworking pieces. The inlays add such nice details to the table. Your carvings are excellent.

thanks for sharing.

Very nice. My only critique would be that I find the grain difference on the one piece of mahogany a bit distracting. Otherwise it’s a wonderful piece.

I am impressed, did you ever do a tutorial on inlays? I am still hoping to learn how to do that

Thanks Cheller, I actually noticed that as well as I was glueing it up. I was was origionally going to leave it out but since I sort of grabbed the Mahogany boards randomly, and the face that I was looking to show the various earthy tones, I opted to just run with it … I hope it is not too destracting …

Roman, I am currently working on the inlay tutorial, it will be completed soon …
