made this sofa table from waterfall bubinga – the wood spoke for itself. This was my first time working with bubinga and I found how hard this wood is! It takes a lot of sanding and sanding and sanding and… It looks solid but I resawed a board bookmatched it and attached the sides and ends to look like a solid piece. The legs are mahagony.

Clean and classy. Bubinga is some of the prettiest wood. Thank you for sharing.
