Built in the spring, this bubinga hall table is my design but inspired by two fine woodworking articles from last year (floating hall table, and inlay cutting boards). The inlay is a mix of various woods in my scrap bin: walnut, maple. padouk, and purpleheart.

There were a whole lot of firsts for me in this project and it ended up as one of my favorites so far. I practiced the inlay a few times with scrap poplar boards before the technique clicked. Once you get it, it is actually pretty easy.

Hope you all like it.

looks really nice, great wood. It looks like the router had a little mind of it’s own on the start of the one inlay

Thanks all.

On the last inlay the router didn’t get away from me, it just followed an updated template. The update just happened to be in the shape of a clamp getting in the way of the router base. ;-)
