Your are going to be disappointed to learn this post is about furniture making and not woodworking. They aren’t always the same activity. I haven’t come up with a new subtractive furniture making technique using flame.

What the title refers to is furniture I have found that looks like wood but is actually metal. First I found some chairs in Alpharetta, GA. a few years back:


The metal Windsor chairs.


Metal wood furniture comes in black, too.

Next, I found this kitchen rack at a local antiques multi-dealer shop:


Made from that special magnetic wood.

Tuesday, I found two more pieces over in Raleigh:


A fan back chair not in wood.

And finally, this desk:


Does one need a lathe to turn metal spindles?

You can tell it’s metal by looking at a drawer side:


No dovetails!
