Small end tables

Iíve done a couple small end tables with a veneer inlay on the top. In both cases the table is cherry. One top uses birds eye maple, the other uses a double book matched maple burl. Lacquer finish. East Indian rosewood inlay near the edge.

Very good work. It would be nice to have a description of the woods used.

I mentioned above, but they are both cherry. They differ in the inlay for the top. The first uses maple burl, the second uses a really nice birds eye maple.

The accent color is East Indian rosewood.

Great looking tables, nice job.

BTW, did you actually inlay the top or did you make the veneered piece first and then frame it in?

Great question. I built a sandwich with MDF as the core. Cherry veneer is on the bottom and figured maple on the top. Then I laminated rosewood to solid cherry and framed the MDF sandwich.

Sounds good and I am hungry. The second table is really going to look good when the cherry darkens with age. Nice work on both tables.

The birds eye table took about three weeks. The maple burl table took about 18 months.... it sat neglected for a long, long time.... I needed it which is why it ultimately got finished.

I purchase all my veneers, but the burl is very old. It came from my dadís old friend. I think he had it close to 30 years, if not longer.

I love your work!! Ive never worked with any veneer but I think I will look into them a bit after seeing the beautiful tables you have built. Keep up the great work!!

Everything i build comes with a redneck warranty. If it breaks you get to keep both pieces.
