I designed this side table in 1992 and is still part of my production line. This design gave birth for round dining tables making use of four curved legs ( some of them carved and twisted) for its base. I will be posting the round tables soon.
This side table’s top is made from ipil and the bow ties are of molave. The curved leg is band sawn from a 6×6” stock yakal post. The base is of molave and kamagong.

She’s got great curves. And your local woods are incredible.

More furniture I absolutely love and made out of hardwoods I’ve never even heard of. I like the subtle color and grain differences and of course the brave design. You never fail to surprise and inspire Benji!

The selection of woods is quite intriguing. They look to be quite hard and have a unique color.
