This Table is one in a set of 4 entitled “The Elements”. They are aptly entitled, Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water.

This one is “Water”, I was able to find a rare piece of very quilted white Ash has the look of wavy water, so what better than a couple of Koi swimming around … The Koi are Solid Ebony and Paduak, the table is heavey 2 – 4” thick cherry, and the base is ebonized white ash. The base is all hand notched to creat the pattern..

This is a gorgeous table. The design and detail on the table are nothing short of artwork. Very nice.

What finish did you use to keep the quilt shimmery?


-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.
