This table was the first piece I have made just to sell and it was a nightmare to finish. Trying to finish it took over 2 years sitting for months between 14 failed attempts.
The table top is Albizia which is an invasive species here in Hawaii. They grow huge and fast. This is one of 4 cross cut slabs I milled from a stump left behind from clearing a lot by my house. The legs are Ohia salvaged from a neighbor’s lot after the tree died. Legs are joined to the top with four 5/8 dowels in each. Bowties are Mango and Hala.
The finish is water born poly sanded to 2000 and buffed out.
