So…. I am really digging these curves. I decided to take my curvy cutting board idea and extend it to make a coffee table. The table measures 50”x28” and sits on a 17” tall walnut apron. The table top woods are purpleheart, walnut, and sapele. It is finished with three coats of satin poly and is standing up to the wear and tear quite well.

From the first photo I thought it was color dyed…. Very colorful table!

Like Spoontaneous, I thought it was dyed and had to look to see how got such clean lines. Wonderful job
on those curves and woodwork. Did you just glue the top, or did you reinforce the joins with dowels,
biscuits or something else. Thank you for sharing, and I think this is very superior to “high grade kindling”,
you might be forcing yourself to change your motto.
