Wood Console Table
Created by Bill Palmer
The amazingly-figured top of this coffee table consists of ambrosia maple, which gets its name from the ambrosia beetle, a small bug that burrows into the tree. Moisture enters the beetle holes and spreads along the grain. Then fungus grows in the moisture, discoloring the wood. As the wood dries, the fungus dies, leaving behind rich earth-toned colors in its place. The slightly curved top has stylized 'natural' edge on both ends. The stylized branch-type legs are individually sculpted from thick walnut lumber. Each piece is unique. Dimensions and patterning may vary slightly.
