This table is made from a cross section of a cedar tree. It still has the bark on the edges and you can see the voids where the branches were attached. the base is Mahogany and the whole piece is finished with multiple coats of rub on poly.

I like it ! Your cedar is a lot more spectacular than our West coast Red Cedar or Yellow Cedar. Is yours really aromatic ?

Natural pieces of wood really do make for some of the most genuine and unique works. Great execution here.

A sofa table that pretty might give your sofa a confidence problem ;-) Very nice.

Very nice classic piece.A sofa table can enhance nearly any living room space.The only problem is making sure you pick a piece that matches up to the rest of the look that you have already created in the room.

That is a wonderful table and will be a great conversation piece. The wood is gorgeous.
