In between commissions, I’m also working on a couple of handmade tables which will be for sale once ready. The first handmade table has a pippy Oak top with a live/waney edge and a butterfly reclaimed Elm base. A very pretty table at 2.4m long and 900mm to 1m wide.
The second handmade table is a fantastic pippy Oak slab 3m long and 900mm wide – I’m not given to adjectives but this will be truly ‘stunning’.
This is going to be a one off piece. The Oak tree that this one piece top came from must have been at least 250 years old to get to this size. The top also incorporates ‘butterfly’ joints or ‘stitching’ in reclaimed mahogany. This is a nod to one of the woodworking greats, George Nakashima.
It’s going to have a contemporary metal base and will be a very handsome piece with big ‘wow’ factor.
Once both pieces are finished and I’ve taken some decent photos of them I shall post them on my ‘For Sale’ page.
