This is an example of the art furniture that I enjoy designing and making. I do these when I don’t have any commission work (which is often lately – world wide recession!?) I have a few galleries that take my one-off pieces on a consignment basis and thankfully I do sell some pieces from time to time.
This hall table was made in Australian Blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon) and Match Poplar (Populus deltoides). Both are exotic timbers that grow locally in abundance. I harvested and saw milled the wood myself. The design seems to be quite successful; I’ve made a few of these already, using different timbers each time.
