This was a cooperative project that I did with my little Sister. I did all the woodwork and she did the painting. The paint is acrylic and the story behind this is. My little Brother is just finishing his divorce and was left with no furniture. So my Sister and I decided to make him a happy divorce day present. he loves her paintings and my woodwork so we combined the two for him. As for the wood it’s eastern maple this was my first try at bent lamination and I think I will be employing these techniques in the future. the finish is Sam Maloof’s wipe on poly. The idea came from a fellow Lumber Jock that did a great job with the bent lamination and wanted to try my hand at it this is his project”” nice work CJay.

I usually don’t like painted wood projects, but this is really fantastic. The trees add a lot to the look of the table, and your build is really nice (those bent laminations look difficult).
