This is a table I created this past fall…One of my favorites.
Created from Old Growth Redwood Burl, I have inlaid the surface with stone and pure gold.
This one did create it’s own challenges, it is a massive piece, coming in at 7 feet x 7 feet…Seats 8 to 12.
When I have exceptional wood to work with, I hate to cut it up, So this one I made as large as the wood would allow! We had milled the wood from a huge (20+ foot diameter) Redwood log…salvage wood out of California. The grain is amazing, solid curly…
The base is stunning in it’s own right…I made it from four consecutive slabs of Redwood burl, bookmatched around the base, and “capped” the corners with the same burl I made the top from. The skirt is made from the edge trimmings from the top slab, natural edges, to match the corner caps on the base…A lot of thought went into this piece…And some work too!
This piece is available for sale…email for info.
