Cherry and Carpathian Elm Dining Table

74″ long by 39″ wide by 30″ high
Cherry, Carpathian Elm Burl, Ebony, and Macassar Ebony
This Cherry wood dining table uses a special batch of Carpathian Elm Burl veneer in a four way bookmatch to create a light colored area of burl in the center of the table.  The top also has Macassar Ebony crossbanding with two Ebony inlays surrounding the Elm Burl center.  The solid Cherry table base design has a slightly Asian Arts and Crafts look and also features panels of Carpathian Elm veneer as accents in the end trestles and along the lower cross piece.  The table top and Carpathian Elm Burl accent panels are finished with Polyester and Conversion Varnish for protection and the base and chairs are finished with satin Lacquer.

The chair design was refined through a number of mockups to finalize the curves and the backsplat shape.  Take a look  at the Cherry and Elm Chair post in the Seating area of the portfolio for more images of the chairs and a longer description.
