I am building a hall table out of dark cherry. Unfortunately the cherry has on large knot hole all the way through in the table top. I am going to put in a bow tie inlay to cover the hole but have two questions (looking for opinions):
1. What kind of wood would look best for the inlay? I have some curly maple that may look good. The cherry is pretty dark so it may add a nice contrast.
2. I know I should add a few more bow ties to give the top some consistency. The table is 34” long and 14” wide. How many bow ties should I put in? The bow tie I am using to cover the knot is 3” long. Should I use the same size throughout?
