TIGERWOOD COFFEE TABLE
The Midwest is home to beautiful hardwoods like black walnut and American cherry. This table aside, all my furniture is built with regional wood. A local lumber company had an unclaimed pile of Goncalo Alves, more commonly known as Tigerwood, a species sourced from Central and South America. The rich orange and brown striations make it unlike most Midwestern wood. I was determined to find the right project for it. The result is this coffee table.
The table uses a splayed mortise joint to affix the legs to the top. All remaining leg and shelf joints are variations on the mortise and tenon.
Wood variety: Goncalo Alves
Dimensions: 18" x 59" x 19" (H x W x D)
