Default Re: New Year's Resolution - Get Working on a New Table

I got around to doing a test piece for the racetrack this weekend, and really liked the results. Going with a birch racetrack stained black with small 1/2" diameter white mother of pearl inlays at each seating location. Colorwise, the goal is to make it dark enough to look almost 100% black from a distance, but to have the grain pattern show through when you're seated. Here's the test piece, it still needs a couple more coats of poly to smooth out the surface but it's good enough to show how it should look. I think it needs to be a hair darker, I'll have to strengthen the stain concentration for the final product:
