This is one bentwood table I have a line of using bentwood veneers to produce motion in furniture by way of curves. What is so special about this piece is represents a new finish I have invented using paint and metal to produce a unique reactive textured finish. The polychromed finish is either reactive with acid or vinegar mix . It all depends how dark I want the color to be. There are other finishes I am working with using copper and paint to get a green color or a bronze color. Every show people are amazed to hear this is made of wood when I tell them. They all think this is stone or metal. All this and Heaven too.

That wood in 1st picture looks like it’s Cinnamon Stick! Yummy!

Gorgeous… Beautiful… Exquisite… Superb… Fantastic…

You fill-in the Adjectives…. it is it!

Just awesome!

I wonder how the small table is held up… Looks like it could separate and fall flat…

The larger table has lapped pieces meeting at the top to form strength…

Little one looks like it need some help… IMHO…

Great tables!

Thank you.

Unique finish and very well done! How do the legs on the first two stay together?

Two answer the questions the legs at the bottom are cut to accept each other just like the large table and doweled together it is a strong joint that transfers the weight of the glass. All this and Heaven too.
