Default Table and Chairs- Green and Green

I set out to make a really cool table base featuring through tennons and two different kinds of wood (Masaranduba and Durado). The truth is I spent a long time on a base that nobody ever sees because the table top is so big and the chars cover the perimeter. The base is solid 3.5" thick Masaranduba. The uprights were made out of some light wood wrapped in Durado. I made the table extension slides out of light color scrap wood I had. The Masaranduba is so heavy I needed to cut the weight some how.

This was my first attempt at making chairs. I was pretty much over my head the entire time. They're made out of Cherry and Masaranduba. The Cherry has oxidized now and the masaranduba is slightly darker than the Cherry.
