A very serious collector of Chinese tea collectables commissioned me for a “live edged” mesquite table in order to host his imported “burl” tea service.
Project allowed me to venture outside the lines in creating a live edge piece with inset keys.
In the course of design and re-design as well as build and tweak, I managed to end up with two differing bases for the client. One base was for low floor seating the other with small stools. In the end, after losing the tip of my left thumb, I did manage to just break even.
It did seem like a nice idea at the time.
