BUBINGA AND MAPLE TABLE
A bold experiment in coloring maple.
SHOP OWNER: H.C. Sakman
LOCATION: Victoria, BC, Canada
With this project, I just wanted to show the green stain on curly maple, which actually did look good along with natural bubinga finished with ten coats of hand-rubbed varnish. My heart was aching as I started to apply the green aniline dye on this gorgeous curly maple. The legs curve in two planes. Note the beveled edge of the top, completing the curve of the legs.
The bubinga top is 1" thick and 30" in diameter and it has only one joint line (Bubinga board was 16" wide!). The apron is bendable plywood and curly maple veneer applied on the inside & out of the apron. The lower cross braces are lap jointed and loose tennoned to the legs. It was a fun piece to make. I hope it creates some inspiration.. . . H. C. Sakman, a.k.a. "Chico"
