Cherry, Birdseye Maple with spalting,
Paduak beading, Paduak & Curly Maple inlay.
The cherry is
FSC-Certifed. I felt
the striking maple board in this piece was a
bit too narrow all by itself for a hall table
top, so I paired it with a curved, slotted
back of cherry that provides temporary storage
(for mail, photos, etc.) and creates an
out-of-the-ordinary visual presence. The
curved top echoes the flare in the legs, the
frontward sweep of the maple top, and the
arching grain of the front apron.
