This 48”x30”x2” monster was a custom order for the theater department at Otterbine College in Westerville Ohio. It features 7 different species blocked together in a multitude of sizes and if you look closely you can see the subtle “block O” pattern in the center (Go Bucks!). It should be noted that this table was not built using traditional butcher block carpentry. I employed every “cheat” possible to join all of the different species together. The center of the table contains several different core boards, pegs, screws, bolts, etc. I am a firm believer in breaking the rules to enhance the creative possibilities. The art comes first for me. Then I find a way to make the vision come to life by any means necessary. A master craftsman I am not. Enjoy!
