Broad Leaf Sound Splated /heavily figured Maple to seat 14+
48” wide 11’ long 30” tall made from two book matched sets from one Large log
aka the book match on either end of top is the same book match from next mating book match
which makes the base = meaning the grain flows up from the ground across top and back to the ground .
I am very proud to say I work out of “fire wood” still in 20 ’ log lengths if I am lucky!
this a great example there are 44 “dovetail keys all structural top are all Tulip wood , rest are spalted oak/Walnut lignum Vita and Cherry &Figured eastern maple.
All work was done by hand and finished with hand rubber urethane Satin sheen.
186 hours of practical hands on hours evolved -same as all my work the past 6 years I never put pencil to paper once.
Last two photos show what i started with <hope>
