Mindbogglin' “This cleverly designed, breath taking beautiful winecabinet serves as a coffee table. The two towers are made from Baltic birch plywood and veneered with purple heart. The unique door latches with hidden locks are made from black ebony.  Solid yellow cedar, burl interior, custom wineglass holders, LED Lights and hidden compartments are among the many features.  The huge, thick slabs of maple burl on the top are divided by gaps filled with Polyester resin. The edge of the table top is solid black ebony. The base is laminated from plywood, fiberglassed and painted black.  The beautiful purple colour is original, no stain has been used.  Several coats of Poly Urathane have been applied and polished to a high gloss.”

Coffee Table by Mike Wolus
Birdseye Maple and Burl
Vancouver, B.C.

A Broken Masterpiece
"This handcrafted one of a kind coffee table stands by itself as a masterpiece of modern functional art. The legs and the topframe are made from solid Birdseye maple with inlays and borders of black ebony.  The top is covered with quarter inch thick slices of Maple Burl glued to 17mm Baltic Birch plywood.  The Sun is made from Yellow Cedar Burl with rays of yellow cedar. All wood burls have some small holes in it.  Instead of using woodfiller, I opted to fill them with clear casting resin, creating a 3D appearance. Of course the table features two hidden compartments, one under the bottom shelf, the other under the top which must be opened with a special key.  From the conception of the design, down to the smallest detail, a lot of thought and attention has been given in the making of this piece, which is evidenced in the lovely shape of the crack itself. As a finish, I like to use a special Polyurethane clearcoat, which is superior to lacquer, close to an automotive finish in hardness and durability.  Several coats have been applied, then hand polished to a brilliant high gloss. The dimensions of the table are 48 inches in length by 23 inches in width and 18 inches high."
