Sculpted corner table

The top is made from granite called Comet, a very difficult stone to work with and shape, as the black in it, is almost like sugar crystal. The base is made from Koa wood, and I wanted the shelf on the bottom to be random flowing curves, to match the top. This is my personal piece, for my bathroom, it was an end drop off a clients bathroom countertop. So much stone is thrown away at the end of jobs, it makes me sad to see it going into the dumpster when so much can be done with these pieces.

Great artistic craftsmanship.

That’s taking nature to the extreme.

That is a wonderful piece. I really like how the beautiful color of the Koa pulls the colors out of the stone.

Do you do your own polishing of the stones also??

Thanks for posting
