Dining Table Top - Cocobolo and Imbuia

This is a solid Cocobolo and Imbuia Dining Table Top that was made as a commission for a couple that live in the south of France. They went to Exotic Hardwoods to source some incredible timber and then came to us to see what we could make out of it.

Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood of Central American. It stands up well to repeated handling and exposure to water, so was a great choice for a dining table. It is very hard, fine textured, and dense, but is easily machined and finished.

The client also asked for the natural cracks in the wood to be filled with metal, so we filled them with cold cast aluminium to complete the finished furniture piece.

This is the final result, mounted on a polished steel frame legs.
