This Table was designed by a good friend of mine years ago and we found the drawings and I built it a few years ago.The Jones Hall Table is a complicated Shaker fusion piece featuring cherry, tiger striped maple, and tiger wood. Each of the 24 inlays on the apron of the table was hand rasped and finely sanded and (were time consuming) to help create the distinctive look of the Jones Hall Table. Finished with a hand rubbed oil Finish. Thanks for looking!

Great design and craftsmanship! I can believe that the inlays took a lot of effort, but it was well worth it.

Thanks for posting,

Thanks a lot everyone. This piece was the first piece I built when I started my own business. ( really Before)
It was the first piece I put in this little gallery. It was a fun piece that I spent a ton of time on. I took a little time off from furniture for about a year and a half and worked for different companies building wall units and ET centers and kitchens but soon missed my furniture making time and taking the extra time to do something right.

Amazing work filled with patience and perseverance. Worth effort on sanding and hand finishing. Excellent design too including the stability and proportion. Thanks for posting.
