Debbie called to ask for a coffee table for her husband Steve’s birthday. From the website, she liked the ebony coffee table with a compass rose. I suggested a few design changes, and she agreed.
This table has four tapered black legs. The 16-point inlaid compass rose is made from holly and etimoe. The ebony pie-matched grain pattern extends to the tabletop’s edge, and “waterfalls” to the side over an ebony bevel. It is finished with a water-based varnish, polished to a mirror sheen. Delivery day was a joy as the surprise was maintained until I knocked on the door.
