Spalted Maple Console
This slender table features a heavily spalted pair of bookmatched maple boards for its top, not unlike the texture of travertine marble. The delicately curved legs and shelf are solid cherry. The exposed dovetails holding the parts together are carefully planned to continue the lines of the legs and strainers. The countertop height and relatively narrow width make it ideal for a dining room buffet table, a sofa table, or an entry table in the foyer. Ten of your favorite bottles of wine can wait eagerly on the contoured slats of the shelf. This table is now in a private collection in an historic building in downtown Lincoln, Nebraska.
