We have talked about mango wood in several places on this web site. It is one of our most favorite woods because of mango wood's variety of grain, color, ease to work woth and it ability to finish like a piece of glass. This was a 10ft x 4ft dining table we made for a client, and we put a very light stain on it to darken the wood just a little while still not taking away from the light wood dining table feel (if such a thing exists). Sitting on our best selling U legs, the top really shows itself off.
