The table and chairs were constructed out of sapele and ash using solid panels in place of conventional legs.
The finish is pre catalysed lacquer which was brushed on. I was looking to make something unique but which could take plenty of knocks over time and still look good.

I love the idea of the sapele and ash. I have a bunch of sapele laying around and thought of using it in conjunction with maple, but ash could be a nice touch too

thanks for the comments. I have to confess that combining different woods was more by accident than design. I didn’t have enough sapele for the whole project but a couple of planks of ash from an old project came to the rescue. I have since done some coffee tables in the same style which I will post soon.

Looks amazing! Great job.Dining table and chairs play an important role on your house comfort, luxury and also in your digestion.The decor of your dining space is very important. But the most important aspect of your dining space is undoubtedly the dining table and chairs. Without these your dining space will be totally incomplete.
