    Cocobolo table

    Cocobolo table-top resawed cocobolo,base cobobolo,breadboard ends and drawer fronts bastard rosewood (don't know why it's called that,it don't look nothing like rosewood-maybe the tree looks the same) the drawer sides are teak,the pulls and the top to the drawer stash are cocobolo. 70"long,31"high,and 22"wide.
    i made this piece awhile back and it set in one of the galleries that shows my work for the longest time and never sold, so I'm keeping it for myself.-

    Beautiful table Alex, Very unusual design but I really like it. I don't understand why it didn't sell unless the gallery didn't show it well or had the price up a tad too much??
    Aloha,

    Beautiful piece of craftsmanship Alex. It
    certainly deserved to sell in my opinion.

    Another spectacular piece Alex. I am just amazed at your designs they are so out of the box of standard work. I can not believe it didn't sell also, I know I would love to have that in my house

    A gorgeous piece Alex, I wonder why it didn't sell, what was the price asked if I may ask? and what comission was the shop going to bite?
    Best regards,
    Toni
