My personnal coffee table and end tables. The stone is Blue Pearl GT granite, and the tops are beveled like a mirror bevel, all hand done, no router work. The wood is old growth curly Koa veneer from Hawaii. About 200 hours went into making the 3 pieces. Wood is finished in 12 coats polyurethane and sanded between coats.

I have a 12” square tile of this Blue Pearl Granite that I have been saving to make a small end table or plant stand with….It is really something to look at , just haven’t decided which wood to compliment it best with yet . Your project is an awesome focal point and I admire your skills : )

That is a sweet table. Very nice design. Did you have someone cut and polish the granite?
We did our kitchen counters and stove backsplash in the blue pearl. Boy, if I had know how good Koa looked with it, I would have done my cabinets in Koa. Of course I would have had to take a second mortgage to afford the lumber.

Thanks for posting

This is great, I like the mix of wood and stone. You’re a talented craftsman to be able to work both…. great job.
