This beautifully crafted mahogany and maple table by California designer Greg Zulkie has three stainless steel pots for holding anything from plants to pens. Viewed from the top, one can see how the mahogany “stitches” the maple surfaces together.
Over time, as the mahogany ages, the color of the wood darkens and richens. A tropical wood, mahogany is stable and its high resin content allows it to resist warping and dimensional change preventing shifting in the table surface better than many other woods.
