Madera Cocktail Table in Walnut with Mahogany and Alder

This table is one of those rare pieces which is born of frugality, inspiration and the desire to save beautiful scraps of wood. The top is comprised of walnut from an earlier project, splined together for strength. The alder shelf was already glued up, a door leftover when a client changed to glass doors on a bookcase, and the legs were leftover ends of strips from a mahogany butcher-block countertop. As always, attention to joinery detail and grain were a focus and, in the end, coming across these seemingly mismatched pieces while tidying shop led to a piece we feel is unique, functional and elegant.
