The table is made of cherry, spalted maple and walnut pulls. The spalted maple came from a tree in my parents back yard. And I have no idea why the pictures are sideways.

Really cool piece, the maple caught me off guard on first glance… Looked as if it were glass in the doors, and seeing that pattern on the inside. Love the flow and wood combos.

...how long did this project take you, if you dont mind me asking. (I’m a very new woodworker… And trying to guage just how slow and tedious I really am :)

Very nice looking table. It is going to be interesting to watch that cherry darken over time and contrast with different aspects of the maple as it goes. I like what you did with the doors.

very nice cabinet. Yrs ago I made one much like it except I had ambrosia maple instead of spalted. It has stood the test of time, and I still love mine. Yours should be around more many yrs and be handed downto family

Nice table, and very cool to use wood with a personal history — adds a nice story to a future heirloom.

If you slightly edit pictures before uploading, they don’t turn sideways. Don’t ask why it works, but it does.

Thanks, glad you like the project.
Making this table took about 2 weeks working evenings and weekends. I am slow and deliberate also. Joinery is much cleaner when you take your time.

Thank you. I like mixing and matching wood types. Seems to really draw out the uniqueness of each piece of wood. I too am looking forward to seeing the wood colors in the coming years.

Thank you.
Ambrosia maple is also a beautiful wood. I like seeing the grain of wood. Is the table you are talking about like the small side table you posted in 2010? Maple and walnut is a nice match.

Table looks great.
Lamp is too big for the table. Need little lamp so the table is the focal point.

That’s a great way to use a bit of natural wood for some utility in the room! And a nice little storage area for things too!
