I needed a couple of entry tables for my house and I came up with these two designs. Their both built with a cool piece of spalted maple. The first is a narrow table to fit behind my front door. The idea was to have something “light” in that small space. I originally was going to orient both legs perpendicular to the top, but the wife suggested rotating one of them 90*. I think it was a great suggestion. The bottom is white oak with GF gel stain. Finish for the top was wiping varnish.
The second piece is a console type table behind a sofa in my living room. I had a table there, but the top had been beaten up. So I removed the top and used a cool piece of spalted maple with a live edge. The top is crazily figured and has spalting, ant and bug holes, and all kinds of imperfections. I think all of those character flaws make it a cool piece. It’s finished with dark walnut danish oil and wiping varnish.
Thanks for looking.
