This is actually the second iteration of this design-I built the first one for some friends last year and then was commissioned to build this one with a couple of changes per customer request, i.e. a more elegant, less blocky base and a thinner top.
The table base is made entirely from Quarter Sawn Sycamore with Walnut tusks in the stretcher on both ends. The top alternates between QS Sycamore, Maple, and a single strip of Black Walnut that I reused from an ancient, beat up picture frame. I’ve detailed more of the process on my blog: “http://brokenriverjoinery.wordpress.com”.
I included a shot of the rough lumber as it came from the mill just to give the before and after. I suppose I could have taken a photo of Sycamore tree to really complete the circle…
