I also like combining different woods, here is a cedar cabinet trimmed with a padouk inlay in curly maple.

Looks great!
Will the miter joints split when the maple board expands wth seasonal movement?

I hope not I kinda cheated on them. I used pocket hole screws with glue to make them stronger.

I gotta admit, my first thought was how great it looked. My second thought was “wood movement.”

Hey great looking table, colors work very well together as well as style and size. It’s gone into my favorites as it’s definitely awesome. And it is very similar to a project I’m working on.

Thanks guys, no the top isn’t veneer. It was some curly maple I had left over that a friend gave me. I planed it down to about 3/4”.

Beautiful. I love the wood combination. I need to learn a lot more about wood movement so I understand more what some of the others are talking about. I know the basics but I always need to know more. Great looking piece.
