The string inlay is sycamore, the inlayed panels at the tops of the legs are quarter-sawn curly maple, and the cock bead and cuffs at the bottom of the legs are made from ebony. The legs are a 1º continuous taper that meet the apron at this angle. The flame birch was a tricky wood to finish with a hand plane and many honing angles were tried and rejected before a 32º hone achieved the desired lack of tear-out. The inlay alone took about 20 hours to complete and the table as a whole was a 70 hour labour of love.
