This table set was named the “Cubiyoo” because Cubi is the Latin word for cube, and ooh is what leaves customers’ mouths when they see this set.
The species of wood used in this particular table set is known as worm scarred and mineral stained maple. It is also known as ambrosia maple, because ambrosia beetles infest the maple trees and bring with them a fungus that discolors the wood – very interesting! Some people refer to this wood as ghost maple because often, the beetle holes are situated side by side, and when this happens, the “eyes” within the stain make the stain resemble a ghost. The mineral staining happens when the tree brings up various minerals from the earth, which also discolors the wood.
This set is perfect for those small spaces with each chair fitting comfortably within the table like a puzzle piece. Other species of wood are available.
6, 8 and 10 chair table sets can also be custom ordered.

Each piece of furniture is handcrafted by American workers in our woodshop in the Russell Industrial Center, located in the heart of the City of Detroit. Because each piece of furniture is made-to-order, we are able to offer a wide variety of colors and finishes. We can also create a custom color, or custom match furniture you own, for an additional charge of $500.
Mobel Link Furniture is constructed from beautiful and durable Baltic birch plywood. If you would prefer to have all-American content in your furniture, we can also make your piece out of American-made “ApplePly” brand plywood, manufactured by States Industries located in Eugene, Oregon. (As this product is more costly, please expect a small up-charge.) Please call to inquire about prices if you wish to have your furniture made-to-order from a wood product other than Baltic birch.
