This table is made of walnut ebony and koa top my plan for it was a coffee table at our house but having to younger kids my wife advised me to sell it at a local gallery. The idea came from the new hoover dam bypass bridge I had seen pictures of ,I thought it looked fun to recreate in furniture form. It’s finish a watco danish oil and a high gloss polyurethane with a wax over the top thanks for looking and createks welcome.

the koa wood came from a wood dealer in n.w. washington and he got it from a sawer’s personal statch that worked in hawaii in the early 80’s.

Really like the rustic top on the more formal stand. Table would fit in well in most any setting. Nice work.

Have your say...
