The Handmade Rustic Two Top Table With Tree Trunk Base is extremely rare due to the fact that the top layer of wood is a 60 lb piece of solid Alemendro Wood. This extremely rare wood is hard to find because of its durability and weight. Luckily my Artisans in Costa Rica were able to find a fallen tree in the tropical rainforest. In fact the weight of the wood is so much that when I tried to drill angled holes with a pockethole, over a long period of time, thescrews couldn’t hold the weight of this tabletop. Because of this, we have built a conjoining piece to indirectly connect the base to the tabletop. Other features of this table include the sheen and the pinkish hue given off by the wood that can be seen. Our pieces at The Rustic Home Store are designed to last a lifetime,so they can be cherished through generation to generation.
