This project design and build is by Master Craftsman Michael Pietras through Artisans of the Valley.
Starting with an abstract redwood slab Michael followed the grain lines with these unique ebony butterflies. Each butterfly is designed to follow the natural path of the grain.
The table edge remains live, painted black.
The base is African Wenge, crisp angles create a dramatic support structure. Mounted with metal strips, this joint is extremely solid.
Finish is a proprietary mix of chemicals that prevent the redwood from turning black while protecting and hardening the surface.
