I think I need to change the title of the blog, because now I'm not the one among my family members who makes miniatures :) Any ideas?:) Now I should write "we", not "I" made.
My hubby, Denis, decided to make one more table, he was inspired by some modern design tables, made few changes and here it is:
The first attempt was actually kinda cool, the wood that was used is called purpleheart (Amaranth), it has the color of aubergine, which my Canon camera couldn't show properly. It's actually very hard wood to work with, hard to cut and polish. So the table turned out to be perfect, but the finishing to our point of view was a bit wrong.
We were disappointed but I thought that the table is more than interesting to give it a second try.
This time the wood that was used was kaya (hm, wikipedia says it's a rare type of wood in Japan, and very expensive, don't know, it was expensive but we had no idea about it - maybe it was kiaat tree) (later on it turned out to be Khaya, some kind of a Mahogany). The picture below shows the pieces made out of it:
