I don't know if this the right division of our forum to post this because I still have doubts about what is "flatwork" my english vocabulary is improving a lot since I'm in this forum and its great!.
I'm almost finished with this coffe table, I is made of Iroko wood and I’m on the process of finishing it.
As you can see I used wedged tenons “Maloof style” of a ligther color wood to give some visual interest to a bit visually uninteristing side in my opinion.
What is driving me nuts is the central strip of lighter coloured wood, because I do not know what to do with it. Dye it or leave it like that and wait for the natural darkening of the wood with time. It looks far better on the pictures than in reality. If it was like it appears I wouldn't mind leaving it like that.
It disturbs me quite a bit but I might be wrong in my appreciation.
I’d appreciate any suggestions comments that any of you will make.
Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoy the pictures.
