Cherry Coffee Tables

I recently completed this pair of coffee tables for a patient customer.  They were made from a local fruit cherry tree.

Cherry TablesThe 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.

    1. Hi Faye,

      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.


  1. 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.

    1. Bill,

      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.


I would be delighted if you left a comment!
