Ebonized Ash And Locust Coffee Table

Our first totally locally sourced material.

The black locust base, sometimes referred to by boat builders as "American Teak" for its hardness, durability and similarity of grain was cut, sawn and dried within 3 miles of my shop. The top is American white ash also sawn and dried right here in Truro.
The finish has a hand rubbed shellac wash coat and sprayed on water-based topcoats a durable finish that meets NKBC standards. (I wouldn't put down iced hard alcohol drinks on it without a coaster though)
