Well I was impressed with this little item and I tried out some inlay skills I needed to develop. it’s made from Silky Oak with Queensland Red Cedar inlay with Red Gum Berries and the draws from Queensland Maple. I got lots of brownie points from the wife for this and I’d have to say it was one of the most satisfying projects I’ve done. I kinda like the American period furniture in the Southern Style.

I know it’s my first post but I think you guys will like it, just forgive me for showing off this one time.

That is beautiful. Sometimes these can look overdone. You hit a very nice balance.

Well seeing you all like it here are few pictures of the build, note the slabs I started with. I used the Lie Nielsen inlay tools for this project and got the plans from Popular Woodworking that I’m sure many of you read seeing it’s an American publication. For a High School Math Teacher I think I do alright at woodwork, I know my students in math love to see what I come up with next and I explain some of the math skills that I use to solve problems in my projects.
