We used poplar wood to create a “Honey-Basque” table fashioned after one made by Crate & Barrel (made in Asia) with mango wood. Poplar has a similar grain and texture and is available to American woodworkers. Compare our results with C&B’s table photo. Our production is shown first. Pretty darn close, and much better wood and workmanship! Thanks to our Montpelier customer for buying locally. God bless!
