On a recent trip to Asheville, I stopped by Scroungers Paradise and saw some beautiful Tigerwood they recently had imported. I couldn’t help myself and bought several boards including some 4×4s! My wife has been wanting a coffee table for a while and this would do the trick. Thanks to my Festool Domino, finished with BLO, dewaxed shellac and a couple of clear coats it turned out as a thing of beauty!

Nice table, simple but unique. I love the look of tigerwood but I hate working with it. Its so splintery.
