Hello folks,today I would like to share with you a kitchen table and fours stools I made using a Brazilian wood called “Balsamo” (Balsam) cientific name:Myroxylon Balsamum.
This wood has a nice fragrance and all the house has this perfume.Every time when we can back home after few days out you can feel the fragrance when open the door.
It is a very nice wood,good quality,easy to work at machines,dense,termite proof,but very dificult to find.I have many scraps that I collected at farmers near my wife born town and after many time saving I had enough wood to made the table and stools.Only small pieces unfortunately.The long pieces was 40”x3”.
Here the table done.The top size (39”x39”)
Here the top pattern.Has the same pattern of stools seat.The stripes are glued at a piece of plywood (to save wood).
I made the round corner on each stripe to add a special look.
Here the groove permit clean the dust and other small pieces of food or similar.The edge stripe has a low position.
The “L” shape leg (to save wood)
The stools (four of this).The seat has 14 1/2”x14 1/2”
Thanks for attention
