Coffee table out of Cherry, framing Wenge veneer. Mortice and Tenon joinery. The finish is shelac, with spar varnish on the top for better protection. I also waxed it.

I like the contrast in woods. How thick is the Wenge… is it solid or veneer?

Even though it’s a very straightforward design, you’ve done a fantastic job on it.

Thanks for posting it.
