I think it is beautiful. Too often we only think of teak for decking. It’s a beautiful wood. I can imagine that it’s a pretty heavy table though.

The simplicity of the design creates a very elegant style. VERY well done sir!

Nowa, I live in Grenada W.I. It’s the southern most Caribbean island and teak trees grow here on the island. All the teak used in this project was local rough sawn and I milled it down flat and straight. I buy the teak at 4.50 a board foot. Yep not a typo 4.50
