Very nicely done—I’m assuming those are veneers.

OK had a visitor so had to stop in progress.

The tables are from a project in woodsmith.

The main timber used was Tasmanian blackwood
the top and lower shelf is ply with veneer inlay on each side, the back being plain poplar and the main side a series of “too much time on my hands ” work with wad punches and trimming knives.
the alternative inserts are veneered with Aust red cedar Poplar and western red cedar.

The Table in Pic 1 has quadrant Tasmanian Myrtle veneer with the trim and the edge finished with poplar
The Table in Pic 3 has quadrant Tasmanian Oak and Tasmanian Myrtle trim and the frog!
Pic 4, 5 and 6 are alternative effects I made
4. Tas oak Kauri with borders of poplar and Myrtle
5. Poplar and Aust Red Cedar wad pinched out.
6. Myrtle and Western red Cedar.

Why the wad punching? well all the cedar sheets had a defect right in the middle and I wanted to see if I could remove it without splitting the veneer, the smaller ones was me getting carried away!

I bought all the products rough sawn (- minus the ply and veneers) and machined them to build the tables

At the time I did not have a vacuum press so I build a bolt down unit to press the veneer after gluing.
The diamond feature veneer trim is store bought. the checker effect done in the shop
