Hello all. Here is my first real furniture project since i went down the rabbit hole that is woodworking. It all started with my parents wanting some kind of funky table for their desolate entryway. I pondered what wood I would go with and when I could not decide it clicked to use all of the species I had on hand (except softwoods). The table provided a great chance to test my favorite finish regiment on all different species that i have not previously worked with. As it turns out, paduak bleeds when the alcohol in shellac touches it. I am aware that the different species will not work well with each other as far as wood movement. I am confident (delusional) that making the top out of thin strips on a baltic birch plywood substrate will be stable. Time will tell how it will react.

Sprecs: 33” Tall, 60” Wide, 18” Deep

Species: Andiroba, Ambrosia Maple, Curly Maple, Maple, White Oak, Mahogany, Mesquite, Walnut, Peruvian Walnut, Cherry, Zebrawood, Purpleheart, Paduak, Mysterywood/Tornillo? BB Plywood. The strips are about 3/16” thick.

The legs were made from some kind of weird ferrous wood that smelled kind of rusty.

-- Hunter, Houston TX

Beautiful!

I’ve been mixing up the species to very nice effect. So far, only one regret out of the bunch. In any event, I join you in your delusions if that’s what it is. On the other hand, how else are you going to build something that amazing? Well done!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

This top looks fantastic – by it’s content of different type/colours of woods and shape.

that is definitely an eye catcher and a good one at that.

Well Done

More types of wood than most suppliers, aging that ferrous wood makes is so much stronger,
