Project Information

I made and designed this piece for some good friends of mine that just finished building a modern 6 story home looking over Seattle's lake Union. I chose to use maple as the primary wood in order to match the maple butcher block counter tops in their kitchen and ebonized maple legs & arched aprons, ebony splines, & ebony inlays to match their black leather furniture in the adjacent living room. My grateful friends are now enjoying their table in their 4th floor dining room while watching the seaplanes land on the lake. (He purchased the chairs in his own.)

Furniture type: table

Wood: Maple, Ebony, & Ebonized Maple

Other materials: Brushed Stainless Steel

Finish:Tung oil, linseed oil, & urethane (ARM-R-Seal & SEAL-A-CELL)

Approx. hours to complete:250

Dimensions: (Depth x Width x Height): 64×64x32

Designed using Google's Sketchup

William, lovely table.

I think you need to downsize your pictures somewhat; they are cutting off the right side.

Like the clean, contemporary design, choice of woods, and am bowled over by the miter shaping and inlay around the stainless panel. Really exemplary.

Don, is that you? Didn't recognize you at first!
