I was approached by a local architectural firm to design and build a small table to display the use of sustainable and environmentally friendly products. This table is what I created for the display.
The light panels and slats are bamboo and the black framework is of poplar. Both are rapidly renewable and sustainably grown. The finish is a waterbase lacquer and fits the model for low VOC content and is considered “friendly” to the environment. I must say there was virtually no odor involved in the finish nor was there any gassing off as experienced from petroleum based products.
I did not have time to get any good finish photos of this piece because I was running tight on schedule.
