East Indian Walnut Cocktail Table


This cocktail table is made from a very old slab of East Indian Walnut. This particular piece casts off a natural dark green tone. It has beautiful live-edge sides; the cambium which is the light part of the wood between the tree bark and central hardwood provides a beautiful contrast to the dark green center. The legs are made of old-growth India Teak and also have a live-edge and contrasting cambium.

This particular piece of wood was very difficult to work with because of its sheer density, hardness, and weight. It was so difficult to work with that it burned out and ruined one of my best saws.
