This is built from salvaged Mahogany. As in the customer was moving a bookcase by herself and it turned over busting it to pieces. Turns out her ex husband built the bookcase many years ago, so it had whatever the opposite of “sentimentel” value is. hehe..She asked my to make a table for her new flat screen to sit on out of it.
The whole thing is solid Mahogany except for a little maple and walnut inlay i did in the top. Plus the drawer front i fashioned from a chunk of 8/4 walnut. I thought some of you might like the way i made this inlay so i posted a self explanatory pic of it.
The walnut drawer front was a last minute (7 hour!) artistic license excursion i went out on. Which basically translates to me finding a good way to not make as much money as i should off the project! I kind of fancy it though and am glad i gave the table that extra ummmphhh.
The table is approx 27”tall x 18”deep x 49”long. The finish is clear laquer on the natural wood.
