    Bubinga & Walnut Table.......Pics

    Here's my latest table. Bubinga and walnut finished with tung oil (Daly's BenMatte) and Watco satin wax. Top is 48" X 19" and the table stands about 30" tall. The bubinga has the nicest figure (waterfall?) of any I've purchased so far.

    beautiful! Fantastic figure there. It appears the top is one solid slab... but I am having a hard time believing that, as I'd guess a slab of such nicely figured wood to be $$$$$, and so hard to NOT slice up into veneer! Is it a solid slab?

    Purdy!!! Very nice design and I agree with Greg that it very much compliments the wonderful material you chose for the project.

    Very nice indeed... I have always preferred domestic wood for what-ever reason... but absolutely love bubinga. That's some nice stuff you got hold of there.

    Regards...

    It's a solid slab. The board was 16 feet long that this chunk came from. It was very pricey.

    Yes very purty. The apron appears much darker than the legs. Is it a different species, stained ?

    Gorgeous Figure, and great work! Nice find on the single slab!
    Sawdust is some of the best learning material!

    Very sweet looking table. I love the top.

    How hard is the bubinga to work with?

    It's a nice wood to work with. Hard and heavy. Its sands, glues and accepts finish well. Figured boards get a little planer tearout, so a drum sander is key.

    The apron is walnut, the lighting made it look darker than it is. There's an overhead light casting a shadow.

    It's 7/8" thick. Luckily I didn't have to send it through a planer. Just took it to a local cabinet maker and had him run it through the drum sander. I need a Performax 22-44.
