I just finished up this table for a local client. It had to be sturdy, fit at least 4 people, and be delivered before Thanksgiving. Somehow, it all came together. The wood is Sapele. It looks a lot like Mahogany and is quickly becoming one of my favorite woods to work with. The finish is sprayed lacquer and I buffed out the top with dark paste wax. It was a blast to build and they’ve already ordered two more pieces.

Thanks for looking,

Lovely. Here’s a question: The grain lines on the top seem to be continuous, wrapping down over the edge onto the end, indicating that I am seeing the true end-grain of the top. On those 45% cut-off corners, however, it looks like there is an applied piece. What’s the story?

I think it’s just something funny with the photo. The top is all one solid piece. I need to invest in better lighting. Thanks for checking it out!
