With a lot of help from Mother Nature, aspen wood was used in the creation of the chairs and the table base. Weathered wood with inlaid slate create the top of the table. The trestle base support is very difficult to see in this picture, but it has inter-mingled aspen branches to simulate a natural flow.

wow. I’m not sure what I expected to see but my first glance already had me doing a double take!
The pattern created in the back of the chair is very …..... oh, let’s just say “wonderful”.
And then I saw the edge of the table… Hmm that looks really interesting. I’d love to see a close-up of that. Then I saw the table top and that was intriguing and finally my eyes made their way to the base and once again I was surprised by the “rustic”-ness.
Slate inlay, huh? Wonderful.
I’d be honoured to have something like this sitting in my home. I’d definitely be inviting guests over for a meal so that I could share the beauty with others.

Well done.

I would like to see a close up of the fringe around the table top, too. It looks very interesting. The chairs and table are wonderful.

Please, don’t overlook the “fringe” underneath the chair seats as well.

Thanks to all…........!

Plus, you can take hot pots right to the table! – and a quick turn of one of the chairs spindles can turn a lingering guest into one who won’t overstay his welcome ;)

Very nice and organic piece.

That’s a beautiful set. How long did it take to make it?

RB, those are just terrific! I don’t think I’ve every seen anything quite life this.

I have difficulty fitting pieces that I think I’ve cut square. How on earth do you do this?

What a great dining room set, It’s beautiful.
At one time at least in this area, Aspen was considered junk.
Boy have things changed over the years.

Phenomenal piece of work. I’d love to have something like that in my house. I’m guessing it has some weight to it.
