This table was inspired by some of the most intensely figured wood that I ever have come across. The sugar maple occasionally exhibits the birdseye grain but this form of blistering is much more rare. As well, this is an outstanding example of the beauty so often hidden. The surface of the log underneath the bark has a blistered look but from the outer bark there is little if any sign of the interesting figure of the wood. I chose walnut burl for the legs in order to contrast the top both in colour and grain pattern.
