The Austen Coffee Table is hand-crafted from solid Sapele. The table is made from four solid pieces of carefully selected solid wood joined seamlessly with old school joinery. There is no metal used in the making of this table top. The wood is then formed into a 30" diameter circle with smoothed over edges that create a classy look. The table is then sanded to perfection before a few coats of natural tung oil is applied to bring out the natural beauty of the wood. The table is finally sealed with an oil polyurethane finish.
