Can Anyone ID this Very Unusual Table?

Good Questions

Q: I scored this unique table for $10 at an auction and I'm having trouble finding an example of another one online. It's solid wood, but I'm not sure what kind. No markings on it at all. It has a pretty inlay on top, with glass. Maybe it's not a side table at all and I'm looking at it all wrong. Any suggestions? Have you seen one like this before?
