Coffee Table

Hello all, first post here.

I wanted to get some thoughts on the coffee table I made recently (ignore the spots, that was the camera):





I made a few obvious mistakes, just wanted some thoughts

I wrote a 3 part series on how it was made, but I don't know if it's OK to post a link or not.

I like what you did with the inlay work. Did you stain the table and not the inlay to get that contrast? Or did you use two different woods? Or maybe both. It's hard to tell from the pic.

The inlay is stained a different color than the table and the grain is perpendicular to the rest of the table.

There's my write-up of how it was made. Suggestions/pointers would be well appreciated :)

Wow that one is really a master work. Finishing at its best and logo of tree at above coffee table is simply superb.

Waiting to see more work from you.
