Cocobolo Slab Hall Table
The legs are Elm; all cut from the large slab in the 6th picture.
Finished with teak oil.
The two slabs on the table are Cocobolo, which is probably my favorite type of wood because of the beautiful heartwood. This was the first time I’ve worked with a Cocobolo slab. I was surprised by the very bright yellow sapwood. Does anyone know if/when it will fade?
There are areas where the sapwood is as bright yellow as a highlighter.
This photo is my Cocobolo stock that I picked up on my last wood buying trip to Cropp Timber. The longest boards are two meters, they had to be cut from 3+ meters to fit in my van.
More from my blog Buying Exotic Lumber.
