A bubinga sofa table, I had seen an oak table similar in design and thought the bubinga I just happened to have would work out just right. I used minwax semigloss spray cans for the finish. 60”W x 16”D x 30” H.

Excellent table! The curved legs give it a nice touch.

Very nice table! Beautiful wood and finish. The design has too look better with that bubinga, than it ever could out of oak. Congratulations on an excellent build and use of a beautiful wood. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous table. Love the design. A close-up of the grain on that top would have been like icing on the cake.

Very nice table, I like the design and it seems more fitting in bubinga than if it were done in oak. I must agree with the rest about wanting more pics, Its just to nice of a table for just one picture.

Thank you for all the comments, I used Minwax semiglos spray cans, a little more expensive than brushing but a lot more convenient, I will get a few more pics posted.
