Cocobolo Top, Padauk legs and bars on bottom shelf, Walnut aprons.
This was taken when the table was about 3 or 4 years old in the mid 80's.

That thing looks sturdy! Nice colors too!

I assume this is a coffee table. What are the dimensions? How thick is the
top? I assume that the top has a builtup edge around it.

Thank you. Very Sturdy, and I was lucky with the color match.

Yeah, like the title says, :~)



What are the dimensions?

Approximately, 18" tall, 18" wide, and 42" long.


How thick is the
top?


3/4"

Yes the edge is 3/4 x 1.5" Padauk with a piece of 3/4 x 2" Walnut behind
that for accent.

Ah, when such a combination of exotic solid woods did not cost as much as
your house.

Very nice looking.

Looks like a pretty darn good use of it too.

Leon,

That's too nice of woods for a furniture piece. It should be a work bench.
