Table was designed for use, durability and beauty. The species are maple and walnut. There are no metal fasteners.
A coffee table that I designed and made for my wife and I. We had an idea of what we wanted and came up with this. I think it came out nicely. It has a feeling of heaviness when viewed from the side but when viewed from above, it seems weightless. The veneer helps to achieve this I think. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Detail of top. Veneered hard curly maple. It took me a while to find something that looked just right for the scale of the table. I think it looks very nice. The figure is usually covered by my cat. :)

That's a beatuiful table and a wonderful top surface. I'd like to know where you found your veneer and what application technique did you use to apply it. I have a table project going on right now and have never used a veneer before so any info you share would be helpful.(I'm interested in a figured maple)
Very, very nice. The view from the top, which is the part you see the most, is absolutely stunning. The dark edges draw your eye to and accent the beautiful striping perfectly.
