This is a solid Mahogany “Wavy” table. I took several boards of mahogany and cut about 200 1/8 inch strips, then I glued them all back together again in this wave form. I glued about 10 strips a day over a 1 week period to get the finished 20 inch wide table. the 4 legs and stretcher were done the same way.. the table top is wrapped in black walnut.

Wow, I’m impressed. That is awesome. I can only imagine all the work that went into it; the design, the glue up, the sanding, the finish …

How did you level it?

In creating unique furniture, when you can make wood elegantly turn and curve, that’s when you make money!

That is a sweet table! 200 1/8” strips?! You and Patron should start a school for patience.
