Recently I've been making a series of small, fun and low-cost tables. Many tables incorporate colorful inlaid koi fish, butterflies or similar floating on undulating-grained veneer tops. Other tables are solid with "whimsical" designs inlaid in them. When guests come over and pull up a chair just plop
one of these down beside them for their drink. Or use anytime for
displaying flower arrangements.
All tables are finished with multiple coats of shellac/varnish followed with wax. They stand on silicon rubber feet.
