I spend a significant amount of time searching for boards that have grain patterns that will enhance my design ideas. The grain in the boards that I selected for the top of this table resembles ocean currents and eddies.

For this commission I used the map coordinates, compass rose, and No Man’s Land island to create the balance in the design. The signature map border is a handmade banding that I designed for this series of inlays.
