Ancient Kauri table a standout.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

A wood table selling for $100,000 may seem pricey until you consider it is made from the oldest workable wood in the world -50,000-year-old kauri. Bob Teisberg, owner of the sole U.S. ancient kauri distributor, Ancientwood, La Pointe, WI, says the 42-inch by 94-inch Kahiko (Ancient One) table is one of a kind.

The tabletop was constructed with two book-matched pieces of ancient kauri, with the natural edges facing the center. The base consists of engineered wood and carbon fiber. To enhance the 3D shimmer inherent in the wood it was polished using 1,000 to 1,200 grit before the finish was applied, bit.ly/10ebbNZ
