I saw the piece of natural edge koa tossed aside and thought it could make a fun nakishima style table. The whole table is koa exept for the ebony feet it’s 26” tall 30” long and12” wide with a wipe on poly finish I had to make the ebony feet because it was a little tippy but a fun project.

Very organic. A wonderful way to use what some would say is useless.

That’s a wood lovers table for sure. Just stumbled across this project. Koa is King.
