Firstly - wow - that inlay table is simply an amazing functional art piece!
Secondly, what a fun idea OP - wishing you the best of luck on your new coffee table!
Personally I'm really into the rustic/vintage/recycled look... and I cannot stand a glass table top!!! I don't use coasters, and the sound when
something hits one makes me cringe.
This is the sort of table I would like... Made out of recycled wood (heat treated pallets). A cut out of ATS (it's a rubbish drawing. Hahahaha!
Much smaller than on the drawing) in the middle of the table, inalyed with moss green glass (will go nicely with the recycled wood. So, that's
smaller logo than shown, just in the middle, so not actually where you use the table.
Tinfoil inlay on the sides, I would however stain/paint the tin foil, so it's not shiny silver, but instead a subtle brown shade.
Recycled wood for the legs, square moss green inlays (or alternatively shape them like ufo's/tinfoil hats/etc). Now that's a table I would actually
use! And I wouldn't have to be a furniture maker to make it myself.
