We call this our giraffe table as the legs are so long and thin. It is made from cherry and walnut. A Christmas present for my wife. The legs are my first real turning project on my lathe and I am continuing to work on my inlay skills. The legs are removable for transportation if necessary. My wife is quite into music and if you look closely at the table top, you can see a music staff (5 horizontal lines). The dark inlaid circle you see is a “C” note, which stands for our last name. The 5 horizontal lines are cherry as well. I used the edge pieces I ripped off the lower part of the legs before I turned them on the lathe. I used my router and a “v” shaped bit to cut the grooves. I then glued the edging strips down into the grooves and used a hand plane to remove the excess. I wish you could see the horizontal lines better and I was quite disappointed with the blemish beside the inlaid circle. It just happened to be a in the cherry in exactly the wrong spot, oh well.
