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

This Table is solid Black Walnut with an Ambrosia “Spalted Maple” Top inset and Base Frame. When I saw this piece of wood “The Top” it was laying on its side and looked like a huge wind storm blowing up. Drop in a few placed leaves and there you have it … Im not sure if it show up in the pictures, but the leaf on the bottom shelr is not inlaid, I left it on the surface for folks to feel,, to add a little different demension to the project.

Beautiful, I really like what you have done. I can see the wind blowing across the table top, very nice.

A.T.

This is a beautiful table. Both the wood itself and the design of the table are absolutely gorgeous. Your inlays add such a nice detail to the piece.

Thanks for the post. This is truly a work of art.

Very clever. Beautiful as always. That looks to be a substantial piece of spalted maple. I kept thinking that has got to be two pieces. If it is, you did a great job of matching up the spalting. How big is the table?

JM, I actually have a place in NC, “Wall Lumber”, that actually carries the spalted in large and thick slabs ..

A.T., another winner! I think I like this one even more than ‘Water!’ All of the work you’ve posted here is amazing, but I especially like the direction you’ve taken with these tables. I can’t wait to see ‘Earth’ and ‘Fire.’
