The legs were a major lathe challenge for me as I do not have a computerized lathe. As we all know, it’s easy to make the first one but a bear to get 4 that pretty well match. I added drawers for cutlery, serviettes and candles. I just used offcut hardwood for the drawer cases as they are not visible.
Bubinga is a dark hardwood that is sometimes called African Rose….....but it really isn’t. It grows near the Congo and is somewhere between teak and oak in hardness. It machines incredibly well and the natural color and grain is beautiful!
