a 'bridges' coffee table

we shipped this one out to california last week ... per the client's request, it is a 24" x 48" coffee table version of our 'bridges' bench.  i almost like it better than the original, and since it was completed, i have also had a request to interpret the design as a dining table base.  i don't know if that will go through or not, but it could be interesting if it does ... scalable, i think is the  word ... bench to a coffee table, to a dining table, to a ... a bridge?  click the photos to enlarge them.
 here's the original, from the bennington museum show, 'state of craft'  .. 50 years of craft in vermont.
cad drawing .. we actually used the same form from the bench, which was the same height as the coffee table ..

I love the color of this table. If you don't mind me asking, what did you use to get that reddish tint? Is it a dye?
