This is the first piece off of my own furniture line called the L&M Collection. It’s named after my daughters middle initials. The metal frame has tabs that extend to hold the wood in place. It is hard to show in pictures, but there is a small gap all the way around between the wood and metal. It provides a visual effect to seem like the wood slabs and panel below appear to float. This also allows the panel to still expand and contract without any visible issues. The holes in the tabs below the wood are slotted to allow for this movement. The center has a “live edge” turned towards the middle with a hand cut glass pattern down the center. The area for the glass was routed out and then shaped with a kutzall disc to make the live edge appear more natural. Please let me know what you think. I am excited by how this turned out, but I know there is always room for improvement.
