A classmate from our days at the US Air Force Academy called to inquire about a coffee table. He wanted a table that would display memorabilia from his Air Force and commercial flying careers. He also wanted our 1979 class crest prominently displayed. Collaboration began that resulted in this table.
Each side of the table houses a shallow drawer under glass to display items. The center panel’s class crest is done in hand-cut marquetry within a border of aluminum inlay. The table is made of walnut. The drawer bottoms reflect the Academy’s terrazzo pattern using ash burl and holly.
