I’m new to the site but have been trying to research a table I just purchased at a community garage sale my wife was running at our church.
The top has Tiger Maple and another type of boarder that’s inlayed. The legs are intricately carved with a ball and claw. I stripped the 1/8 or so worth of polyurethane from the top and have cleaned off the skirts and legs. The depth of the grain is incredible and I’m planning hand-rubbed tung oil finish.
Any ideas on the origin of this thing? Chris
Even after cleaning, the legs are very dark (mahogany or walnut dark). The table is rock solid and really heavy for its size of 3’ x 4×17”.
