Spalted maple book matched  top with base of white oak wtih  black wanlut wegdes and splines.

I sourced the top from Enter the Earth (link below)  in Asheville.  The petrified wood top comes from the Menabe region of western Madagascar, in the former Toliara Province.  (Province de TulĂ©ar in French) near the city of Ankondromena.  Because deposits of different ages are often mixed during collection, scientists date it broadly as Triassic in age (~252-201 million years ago).  Most Madagascan material is preserved Araucarioxylon wood, a genus of evergreen trees related to the modern araucarias.  Base is Black Walnut and Oak wedges and splines.  Available, $475

Commision piece for my friend Bob.  Happy RV'ing!

Ellen requested I make an end table for the house.  In a wood working magazine, I saw a piece of furniture with wedged through mortise and tenons.  Incorporating this style of joinery, I designed these end tables.
