A flame birch top that is rubbed out to a gloss with a maple expresso dyed bottom frame. I wish the pictures showed the depth and curl of the top it’s quite an eye catcher and appears almost liquid and alive. This is the first time I ever rubbed out to a gloss. Not my normal “cup of tea” but I’m very happy with it.

Beautiful table! I’d like to hear more about the ‘expresso dye’. It looks great and sounds tasty too. ;)

The expresso is just a mix of dark walnut and ebony dyes, it’s a little bit more brown than is shown in the picture with some subtle grain showing through.

Very cool looking table. At first I though the top was marble stone, till I read your description.

Thanks for posting

That’s a sharp little table. Makes me want to build one.

That flame top looks stunning. Love those thin legs too. Luv it!
