My daughter wanted a ‘rustic’ end table so I made this one. The top is burled redwood surrounded with wormy walnut and inlay-ed with ten million year old petrified wood. The rest of the table is made with Argentine Mesquite. This Mesquite is one of my favorite woods. All this wood came form my scrap pile. I have a lot of scrap I would like to get rid of consisting of Claro & Bastogne Walnut, Tiger Maple, Koa, Myrtle, Mesquite in Texas Honey and Argentine, some burls of Maple and Redwood also available.

Great scrap pile. Tells a lot about what you have been doing?
Looks like the customer got what she asked for? LOL!

Thanks for the nice comments. It is always pleasant to hear what real woodworkers have to say abut ones’ work.

Beautiful rustic table! Great design and wood selection with a lot of character especially the inlays and the live edges. I’m sure daughter loves it. Great job!

You are correct my daughter does like it and has shown it to her friends. Now I have several young women wanting me to adopt them so they to can have a table and rocker. No go; I already have four daughters and can’t afford any more.

I am now working on an assignment form my youngest daughter in the form of a natural edge coffee table. It should be finished in a week. Made using burled Redwood no inlays, just a solid top and legs. I will post it as soon as I finish it.

It has always been fun to post to LumberJocks for one thing the uplifting comments. They give a boost to an old woodworkers’ ego which is something we all need.
