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

In this piece I opted to let the firery brilliance of the Paduak speak for it self .. So I went totally Asian in this one.

The Top and Base stretchers are solid Paduak and all of the black is Ebonized White Ash …

You have created a wonderful piece, I really liked the autumn piece, but this table for me is perfect. The weight in the legs compliments your thoughts perfectly. I’m excited to see the remainder…...another thing I really like the logo/signature that is used as your avatar for LJ….If you were able to carve that as your signature It really would be so dramatic…..congratulations man

AT….GGGGourgous Man Do I love that Table with the Flaming Paduak utterly BEAUTIFUL. Got to ask this though. l had built a couple of things with Paduak…. but I had this one fellow tell me that it will brown over the years. have you had any problems with that. I love the way you’ve ebonized the white ash. How long ago did you build this one if I may ask…...your brother in woodworking John

I have really enjoyed your series. This piece is spectacular and is my favorite with “wind” a very close second. I am inspired by, and in awe of all my fellow lumberjocks who are not only craftsmen but artists as well. I hope to someday reach as far as you have and work like this inspires me to do so.

Thanks guys, There is actually some truth to that,, if Padauk is exposed to direct sunlight, it will darken over time. what I usually do is, I apply the finish iright after the final sanding, when it is its most bright. That locks in the color, and I always inform the client that it will darken, but that they can slow down the process buy keeping it out of direct sunlight.

I actually worked on all 4 of the elements at the same time, it took about 6 weeks to complete the set.

A marvelous piece of work. The fifth element is Ether(empty space) . So for a few days don’t do anything!

I was waiting for this one. I knew it would be spectacular but this went way beyond spectacular.
I still think wind is my favourite. (It’s spelled right, I’m Canadian)
