I recently completed this pair of coffee tables for a patient customer. They were made from a local fruit cherry tree.
The client wanted two tables that could be used together or independently. Both tables were physically identical, with minor character differences.
The design was the client’s, but I was allowed creative license. One of the customer’s requests was for dark inlay in the tops and I couldn’t resist doing this.
This is the fifteenth slide from my PechaKucha presentation.

Good idea for a coffee / end table(s). Very well done, Chris!
The pictures look great but owning them is even better. Thanks Chris I love my tables.
I’m so pleased that you like them! I know that you like a more formal style of furniture and your husband Dave likes live edges and wild stuff so I wanted to make something you both would love. You did a great job with the design. The 1/4″ bullnose moulding around the apron is a very nice detail with a big impact.
Super tables Chris. The cherry looks great, the darker flash on the top of table two and the grain in general work very well indeed.
I was really surprised to see that dark streak. Wood is such an amazing medium!
I agree with you Chris, the bullnose just adds a detail that sets off the style and formalizes it (or something). Once again… NICE!
Beautiful work! And I agree, the design is top notch. I do small pieces in fruitwood cherry, and I know how much patience is required to handle this wood. The work is stunning, Chris.
Beautiful work Chris! I really like the pegs. Ebony maybe? Well done!
Thanks! The square infills are ebony. I had contemplated ebonizing cherry, but for the little bit that I needed, using ebony seemed easier, and a better choice.
Lovely tables and great build. Nice détails and beautiful refinements.
Those look great! Cherry is such a beautiful wood…
