Wow, Gerry - you mean you had time to make that beautiful tabletop, AND do all that snow shoveling?

Actually needed something to do while the snow was falling.
I worked on the inlay for about 2 weeks but the table only took about 3 days to build.
I am planning to do some cabinet doors and just may but will not put such an intricut inlay in them, but will all have things important to me and my heritage.
Perhaps...canoes and padles.
Now that the snow has gone I can get down to some summer work such as cut next winters firewood .
Glad you all liked my table.

Dude... that is a really nice table. One of the best, if not the best I have seen.

We lived in Visalia, CA for 15 years and there is a bronze End of the Trail Statue in Mooney Grove, just south of the city. It's a great place to stop if you are in the area. Great symbol! One of my favorites.
My father grew up in Visalia, CA and I've seen that statue many times. I think the original used to be in Mooney Grove but they have since moved it to the Cowboy Hall of Fame museum in Oklahoma City, if I have my facts straight and if my father remembered correctly. He's since passed away so that statue has some sentimental memories attached to it.

Very nicely done, Mr. Canoebuilder. You did a fine job.

Talking

After a quick research...

Sculptor James Earle Fraser grew up in South Dakota on his father's ranch and had friendly experiences with the Native Americans of the area and sympathized with their poor treatment. Sculpture was completed before the artist was 17 yrs. old and was entered into a contest in Paris where it received an award of $1,000 (quite a bit of money in the late 1800's). This same sculptor designed the Navy Cross medal and the buffalo nickel with the Native American portrayed on the reverse side.

Here is a link if anyone else likes doing research James Earle Fraser and End of the Trail

The frame is 3/4 White Cedar and the large portion of the table is 1/4 think strips of the same. then the inlay was done with some 1/4 manogany I had laying around after building a grand-father clock and some 1/4 Birch is the lighter wood.
I then covered it all over with 2 coats of epoxy/resin fiberglass, which cures clear.
I use the same process in building my canoes.

Hi Gerry
That looks like you're using one of Hazen's designs. My first was a 20 ft guide using his plans. Later I have been using Bear Mountain Redbird as a starting point and then changing it to suit. Great hobby.
