Cherry & Lacewood Demilune

293
This little demilune is a table I’m revisiting from years ago. This is one of the first tables I made when I started working with veneer. That first table was made in walnut with a walnut burl top and aprons. This one is made from cherry with lacewood and avodire veneer. I’ve always liked the look of lacewood and have had some veneer in my stash looking for a project to use it on. The table is rather simple to build (especially when you still have the old bending forms collecting dust on a shelf. LOL), but the veneer was rather brittle, and the grain was quite heavy. To try to get the top completely flat I put a light coat of epoxy on as a grain filler then sanded it flat before spraying the lacquer finish, a trick I’ve seen used on guitars before they are painted. It was a fun project
