Re-saw and tension.
A piece of cocobolo with a most noticeable dark stain caught my eye. I decided to re-saw the piece into veneers so we could see the whole stain taken section at a time. It was a perfect coffee stain and turned out to work well as a coffee table. This bottom is held together with tension. The vertical slats were compressed and then the whole thing was strung up. When the tension is released from the clamps it is held by the cording causing a rigid structure.
