Cherry & Maple Coffee Table
My client wished to have maple combined with cherry in the top. In order to accomplish this without a hard straight glue line which can be jarring and too obvious, I conceived a unique solution. After orienting the sapwood of the cherry towards the center, I joined it to the maple which is very close in color to the cherry sapwood, thus making the transition from one species to the next almost indistinguishable. Notice the faceted texture on the perimeter of the top; this hand carved edge is a pleasing visual and tactile detail. The pentagonal leg also has this detail on two of its sides. Oil finish.
