This mesquite coffee table is a mate to another project found on this site. I was especially captivated by the unique design of the wood’s ends – eaten up by the various bugs that once lived in the tree. The low and long format makes a striking statement in any setting.
This bench was an interesting challenge! The client wanted a light colored slab that would contrast her darker floors. Luckily, a local Houston wood supplier had a great piece of maple that was suited to the task. We went with a cobalt colored epoxy and used a more opaque blue tint to allow the color to stand out against the light colored wood. Due to the 96″ length of the board, 4 trapezoid legs were fabricated to stabilize the piece and provide enough support to stand on if needed. The bench was finished with seven coats of wipe on poly.
