These are constructed mostly from Honduran mahogany. I can really tell the difference between this and Khaya. Less ribbony I guess. And the grain doesn’t change direction as much as Khaya.

Hey Jake,

Is that the original Aurora table before the arched version? That looks like a Darrell Peart design that I originally purchased from American Furniture Design Co. years ago. It also looks like a Thorsen table that you tweaked. Regardless, very, very nice.

Captain,

This was designed to match the coffee table I made. And you’re right. It is a Darrell Peart design. The coffee table plans came from Darrell’s article here:
http://www.popularwoodworking.com/articleindex/greene-greene-a-mystery-table

I had to buy the issue of the magazine. The history of the coffee table is it was found in the Hall brothers’ shop and was never deployed. Either they liked it too much or it just never found its home.

Have your say...
