This post is a little bit long in coming, but it was one of my favorite projects. The body is made out of goncalo alves and the top and handle were made out of granite. The face of the drawer is goncalo alves and rest of the drawer is baltic birch. I wanted to try my hand out at building without hardware, so the whole project was constructed by interlocking pieces and glue. I was able to find some left over pieces of granite at a local counter top shop. They went as far as to let me come into the shop and chip the tops by myself. Also, one of my neighbors works at the counter top shop, and he managed to make some handles for me. It was a great project, but I didn’t plan on the total weight. I think that altogether each side table weighs over 100 lbs. I ended up finishing with several coats of teak oil and then some hand rubbed urethane. My brother did an amazing job of putting the final coats of finish on.
