I designed this “Japanese inspired” end table to display a tea set in our living room. The curly maple top is inlayed with a cherry blossom motif with 3 butterflies. The body is made of cherry and the horizontal supports are leopardwood. There is a single adjustable glass shelf. It’s finished with several thin coats of arm-r-seal. More pictures of the process can be found here: http://originalsinn.tumblr.com

That is just beautiful. When ever you look at that piece, you will re-minis of all the hours spent on all that joinery.
Well done, something to be inspired by
