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.

Primary wood: Cherry, walnut inlay, maple stringing. Finished with shellac
