Asian Interpretation Table is made from a fallen Walnut tree that Glen was able to save from being turned into firewood. The wood was air dried for about five years waiting for the right design. The warm color, the grain of the wood, and the feel of the material was just what he wanted for this table. His intention was to design a quiet piece of furniture that could contribute a sense of calm to a room.

Glen made the table in walnut and accented it with wenge. He was able to rescue the walnut from being used for firewood.

This is a very interesting and intriguing table. I would love to see some more pictures including close ups of how the top is connected to the legs.

i think glen achieved the sense of calm…the floating top makes it fell airy…and open…the warmth of the walnut makes it all click…very nice piece…nice save on the wood…i love when that happens..

Glan. This was one of the tables you brought to our Central Jersey Woodworkers meeting a little while back. The one that I reallly loved was the curly maple and ebony table. That one left quite an impression one me. Wondering if you might post that one on your lumberjocks projects so all can see it?

I enjoyed working on this table. The joinery has to be very carefully done so that all the various parts fit well and results in plumb legs and a square glue up. I feel the key is dressing the wood carefully making sure the different parts are exactly the same thickness. Each part has to be sized exactly. The legs are attached to the top with 12 figure eights and screws.

I have designed and made other tables along the same line as Asian Interpretation.

Keep your tools sharp
