This is a hexagonal Tabouret that I designed to sit next to my arm chair. It’s made of Beech, an under appreciated and under utilized, domestic species. The marquetry is a 1,2,4 basket weave pattern with a tear in it and bees coming through onto the surface. I’m extremely pleased with this. The proportions are spot on and the interplay between the six legs and the arches is an unexpected bonus as you walk around the piece. Also the marquetry has a whimsical feel to it but if I do it again I think that I’ll have Ladybugs instead of Bees. Any opinions?
