Sweateena Mahogany Low Table
(56x37x15 inches). The wood used for this piece was collected where it grows in South Florida. It was highly prized by European woodworkers in previous centuries when it was exported primarily from Cuba. There is no comparison in other varieties of mahogany for its rich color, grain and perfect density for carving and acoustical resonance for musical instruments. The design for this large “coffee table” came from wanting to try a new method of making the four legs simultaneously on a lathe and then quartering the single “round” to get the legs. That way all four are perfectly matched. I only wish that I also had the right photography skills to show the incredible beauty of this wood. Compare the appearance of this mahogany with that used in the Mahogany Cabinet.
