The "learning table" I've named because I tried to incorporate something new to me during every step of this project. This is the first table I have built. It's also my first experience with stringing and inlay. I started this with a quick sketch and worked up to a full size drawing. It took me two months of working weekends to complete. I relied heavily on a multitude of finewoodworking articles by Garrett Hack in designing and building this piece and I am happy to say that it is my best project yet. Primary wood: Cherry, walnut inlay, maple stringing. Finished with shellac

Design or Plan used: My own design
