This is a table that sits under our flat screen, the satelite receiver is on one side and a DVD player on the other. The wood is Roasted Curly Maple(not stained) and Walnut. I am currently working on a coffee table to match.

Beautiful wood. The contrasting colors compliment each other nicely.

That’s a very nice design and the wood is beautiful.

Cool table! I really like the roasted curly maple and I think the walnut complements it nicely. I’m looking forward to seeing the matching coffee table as well.

Some people have been asking me what Roasted Curly Maple is, it is sometimes call Carmalized. The process is to dry the wood to about 4% moisture content, then put it in an oven at 370 degrees F. for about 4 hours. Any wood put through this process takes on a dark color through out the sample. If anyone wanted to try this on their own, I am sure your spouses would not mind you throwing in a piece with the Christmas turkey!!
