My wonderful and talented husband just finished his latest project, an end table (or side table, occasional table, we don't know) and I must say, along with the last kitchen table he made, it's my favorite piece so far. He used bamboo, beech and walnut and the combination with the design is stunning. He even used inlays for the fisrt time and they are awesome! Take a look:
for some reason I only have 2 "in process" shots, but at least you have an idea of how the color of the wood is brought out with the finish process he uses.
