This is a display table I recently made at a class with sculptural furniture maker Victor Dinovi at Marc Adams School of Woodworking. After making a Maloof Rocker I was hooked on the process of building this type of furniture. I had to wait a couple years until this class came back to the school but it was well worth the wait. The table was made out of poplar. I used a water base dye on it then put on 4 coats of the Maloof finish; 1/3 raw tung oil,1/3 linseed oil,1/3 satin poly followed by 2 coats 1/2 linseed 1/2 tung oil and shredded beeswax. Its a great finish but if you missed anything in your sandining it sticks right out.The table is rather high at about 41” but all in all I was happy with the results.I didn’t know you could get poplar to so good.
