This table shows the stream that not water is flowing but all type of stones are flowing.
At the beginning of the stream, stones get in the stream, mostly big and tall.
As the stones are rolling down the stream, those get rounded, lowered, smoothed, so
look like imbedded in the stream bed. By the time, the stone stream is exiting, they are
pretty much reduced in size and show flat round shapes.
I just think of life and I may rename as “Life stream”.
I tried to simulate the natural erosion process in the stream on this table. Used all types of
woods to make stones and all stones are hand sculptured. Since this is a stone stream table, only
the stone stream has to be emphasized that I did not do any fancy works in the supporting
parts such as legs and aprons.
Table top is hard maple and bottom part is walnut.
Finished with polyurathane three times.
Last picture was taken from back side and has matching cat tails accessory.
