Rosewood & Silver Ash Hall Table

 
 


 
I was given a bit of wood..... well... actually, I was given a Australian Rosewood board. It measured 2800mm X 450mm X 42mm. It was payment for looking after an inspection day at a timber auction. The board went into storage 5 or 6 years ago as it was not fully dry. About 4 or more years ago I got an idea for a narrow hall table.
A few years ago I thought of a basic design of a hall table for this special piece of timber. The design was refined over a period of time after seeing lots sorts of different tables. I'd always envisioned Silver Ash stringing to contrast with the deep red of the Rosewood. I quite like this table but if I did another one I'd put stringing on the front apron.
Overall dimensions are; 2000mm (W) X 300mm (D) X 900mm (T). The finish is Miratone 30% gloss lacquer.
