This is my last finished project. This is one of the results from taking a class on mixing these three elements in furniture and sculptor. I would like to start to add some texture to my work when its possible plus its just plain fun playing in mud! The wood is butternut and it really was a nice looking piece of wood but it just seemed to work better ebonized with the black concrete. You can’t see it from the pictures but there is a 36” X 1/2” steel rod running through the concrete used to support the top.This little table is about 46’’ long X 18” high. Thanks for looking.

I love playing with concrete.

Is the concrete just one piece?

Bagtown, Yes it is just one piece with a mortice cut in the top to accept the tapered concrete.

At first I thought the top was concrete, before I zoomed pics…

Your stuff always amazes me man. Awesome. I know my kids would see it and want to climb all over it…think the table could handle that?

Nice build. There a lot to like here.

The design is great and your choice of material are bold.

Great work.

Nice combination of not only materials, and the placement of them, but also the forms and lines, both curved and straight, that you’ve included here. I am also becoming more and more a fan of mixed media pieces. Not losing any room in my heart for all-wooden pieces, just becoming more open to other options.
