I recently had the pleasure of workin’ with the Advantage Lumber video crew for their brand new ‘Artisans by AdvantageLumber.com YouTube series. you can subscribe to their channel here They documented me designing & making a table from start to finish using gorgeous lumber from their Sarasota, FL location. The top, aprons, and drawer faces of said console table are made from Tigerwood (Goncalo Alves) & the legs are made from Brazilian Cherry (Jatoba). These exotic hardwoods were somewhat difficult to work with in terms of density, but the results are worth it! I finished the Tigerwood with Tung oil & the Jatoba got a wet sanding with Danish Oil, resulting in a silky smooth feel.
