I built this small breakfast table out of a material called wenge (win-gee). Certainly not a cheap (or easy to get) material. In my case, I had it in the attic for quite a while, and wanted to make something big, since most people only make small things out of it.
Ok, so it isn’t likely that you have a bunch of wenge laying around, but you might want a table that you just can’t seem to find in the catalogs or stores. Whats more, finding anything made from solid wood is next to impossible these days.
If you are a purist, and don’t like the sound of “MDF with veneer” being your table, call me to discuss options. Of course, lots of wood species are available.
Have a look at some of the pics from the build.
