Tiger Maple Dining Table: A Custom Work of Art by Greg Goodman

February 10th, 2010 by Peggy Farabaugh

Tiger-maple-trestle-tables Wood lovers will appreciate the beautiful figure in this custom Tiger Maple Trestle Table handcrafted by furniture artisan, Greg Goodman.  

I've been reading up on some of the many types of figured maple wood:  birdseye maple, tiger maple, quilted maple, flamed maple, curly maple, striped maple, fiddleback maple, wavy maple and more.  Various types of stresses while the tree is growing (for example, bugs, injuries, weather and pressure) cause beautiful things to happen to the wood grain.


Greg picked out some striking tiger maple for the top of this custom trestle table and made the base with birdseye maple.  The combination of the two figured woods makes the table a show-stopper!

Isn't it wonderful?  I wish it was my dining table.

Check out Greg's Tiger Maple Trestle Table at Vermont Woods Studios.  Greg builds this and other tables to order.  You can choose from many different table sizes as well as from a list of figured woods including: birdseye maple, tiger maple, natural cherry, birch and more.  If your favorite wood isn't on the list, ask Greg if he can find it.  The answer is probably YES.
