Purple Heart and Maple Light-up Side Table

By Andrea Pinedo

Winning Category

This table was crafted from purple heart and maple woods.  There is a clear inlay of epoxy with lapis stone for the curved stripes on top, giving an interesting blue tone to contrast with the purple.  The lit circles in the center are a surprise, since they are invisible until the table is lit!


I really wanted to show off the true color of the purple heart wood and the lapis stone, and also prolong the natural colors over time.  To do this, I finished it with several coats of Satin General Finishes High Performance Water Based Top Coat.  The wood will stay this beautiful purple for years to come!
