Summer Storm

The Walnut for this hall table came from a tree felled by lighting during a summer storm. This is the first table I used butterfly shaped inserts for stabilizing the cracks rather than the familiar bow ties. It is also the first time I used stainless steel in my work, 3/4” stainless steel rods join the leg sections. The legs are attached to the top with fox wedged tenons. Buttery inserts are Ebony and Wenge. Finish is an oil / varnish mix. Table is 33”H x 48”W x 22”D, completed July 2009.

I like the stylized butterfly keys you made. Aside from the craftsmanship, I think the curly figure on the bend is an excellent natural design element. I can imagine how it looks like that part of the tree was pushed down like a bendy straw. That should be in a gallery if it isn’t already.

Thank you for your comment. Yes, this table is in Underwood Gallery in Wawautosa, WI. I wanted to do something different with the keys rather than the familiar bow tie. I do like this design, it works well with the natural edge.

Very Nakashima-esque. Great job.

Thank you. Most of my work is now Nakashima or natural edged inspired. I’m working on a Walnut cabinet with natural edge door panel. I try to incorporate a bit of natural edge in every piece.
