Modern retro inlay dovetail occasional table
This is a Sycamore and Mahogany modern retro style sofa side table perfect for keeping your phone and coffee cup on.
It features contrasting dovetail inlay with accented middle rail finished with Osmo oil for a high quality satin finish.
This project started with some sycamore I bought whilst on holiday around Lake Windermere last summer. I stored this in my home to acclimatize it to the central heating to prevent any shrinkage or warping and waited for the perfect project to use it on.
After thinking about contrasting woods and how beautiful they look together in a design, I decided this piece of sycamore would be perfect for some inlay dovetails, especially if it was complimented with some gorgeous dark mahogany to make a real statement piece. Dovetail work is time consuming and takes a high level of precision but it worth the effort when the results look so good.
As a result I have created a small elegant modern retro stylish sofa side table with stunning contrasting inlay dovetail joints.
This is a one off unique piece perfect for any home.
