Maple, ebonized Ash and stainless steel. The blending of hard and soft, light and dark. Curves of nature join straight lines of industrial. A design joining opposites together to work as one. The use of Japanese joinery and a floating top allows this table to be free of glue and mechanical fasteners. An interesting feature of the live edge Ash stretcher is you can see tracks left by the Emerald Ash Borer.

Great blend of wood and metal. What type of joints did you use?

Thanks for the comments. The joinery is a variation of a halved joint. The shoulders are tapered and beveled, the male and female halves are also tapered. When you join the stretcher to the feet a few taps of a robber mallet drives it home and the combination of bevels and tapers lock everything securely into place.

What inspired the idea of this design is to show that natural edge furniture can indeed fit in a contemporary designed space. I also took it a bit further by joining opposites. The coarse grain of Ash with the fine grain of Maple. The soft curves of natural edges with the hard lines of sharp edges and stainless steel. And of course light and dark. I noticed the Ying & Yang contest yesterday so I figured I would enter the contest with this table. The stainles steel rods are solid 1-1/4” so this table while appearing somewhat light is actually pretty heavy.

What a cool looking table. I like the blend of materials and design that you used. What is the table used for? And how big is it? Looks tall.
