This is one of my favorite tea tables to make. The one in the picture is in extremely curly cherry. It has a one piece solid top and the entire table is made from wood from the same log set. The legs are very delicate but still beefy enough to stand up to a hard afternoon tea. The color is achieved with a water based analine dye. The final finish is a tung oil and varnish mix.
