Purpleheart Occasional Table

This occasional table was created as a Christmas gift for my brother-in-law, who is a professor at Kansas State University. Given his interest in the color purple … incorporating purpleheart into this table as an accent was a no brainer.

Materials were purpleheart and maple. Design was from a plan in Woodsmith.

Construction time was over 4 weekends.
