When a tree’s trunk divides into two branches, the wood where they meet has highly distorted figure, known to woodworkers as “crotch”. Which is an inelegant name for some spectacular wood. This table’s top consists of mahogany crotch with a center panel of bubinga. There are two Mockett PCS-3 units under custom hatches – note how the wood figure continues across the lids. Crotch veneers are expensive, and tricky to work with, but the results speak for themselves.
