I’m posting this as completed, but it may get a lower shelf. I’m just too tired to think about it. Hickory is a bear to work and those legs took most of my time on this. Still not all that bad for two days.

Top 2” solid walnut with red coral inlay. Not may inlays on this one.
Support is hickory stained with Danish oil red mahogany.

I’ll seal it later in the week after the oil cures.

Also the surface will float like the last one.

I know how the floating top got invented…...warped slabs that are too big to fit in the planer. lol.

Thanks for looking guys.

Where did you get that slab of walnut with the sapwood on it?

palaswood I have a miller here in town, actually I have two, the south miller has great walnut and I get great prices. I have 4 more slabs, so 4 more tables are on the way. I have lots of styles I want to try.

The detail work is just superb, the design and workmanship flawless. Great wood used.

Not sure what you mean by support….but I don’t see any Maple in the pics you posted, just Walnut and Hickory.
Typo?

Tony_S. I’ve been thinking maple all day. The next one will be maple. Unless I grab pecan instead.

Could be Pecan as well. Both Hickory and Pecan are in the Carya genus. and have very similar characteristics.

I have all three. I thought I was pickin from the maple pile, but I may have stuck some hickory on top of it. Either way, it looks okay. Maybe the maple will be easier to work. This hickory is a bitch.
