Thanks for Looking, these tables are a couple of items that I chose to do after seeing an article on Greene and Greene furniture last year. The basic body componets are from Solid Oak and the Orangish color wood is the African wood (Padauk). Which when I saw it I fell in love with the color of it, a Orangish color. After I had made them, My one son was in the process of making a bar for his basement. When he saw the Top of the Sofa table he also fell in love with it and said he had to have that wood for his bar top. So off to the Lumber Store we went and picked up enough to do a 7 foot L shaped bar top. Hope you enjoy the photo’s, I’ll try to upload the bar within the next couple of days. My wife is from the old school, nothings not nice until you put a doilly on it. I say what the hey, I made them for her anyway.

The drawer handles are a nice touch! The Padauk was a nice choice.

You did a good job on these tables. The pegs add a lot of visual interest to the first two tables and, like you, I really enjoy the color of the padauk. And I am sure that your wife was pleased with the tables. They are gorgeous.

Thanks for the post.
