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.
