Makha Burl Tree Trunk Table

Here is a Makha Burl Tree Trunk Table base I found near the upper part of the river Ping. The Makha tree is an exotic hard wood from the old Siam region of Northern/Central Thailand. It is prized for its burl or as the Thai people call the “pom”. This piece is approx. 300 yrs old: it was reclaimed after the 2006 seasonal floods from the river Ping. The base supports a custom round or oval glass table top.
