The San Andreas Table

There are a lot of live edge slab tables on the market these days. So when this client asked about one, I suggested that we run the natural edge down the center of her table. Try something different!IMG_1015 The result was a new table style we’re calling “the San Andreas”. The meandering joint line resembles a fault line on a topographic map, and the areas where the slabs move away from each other look like a bodies of water on a map. IMG_1131Each San Andreas table will be a custom order because the slabs are different every time. We currently have walnut slabs to accommodate table lengths anywhere from 4′ dining table to a 17′ long conference table. Of course, longer slabs can be purchased.

For those that are interested in the process of making this table, here is a short slide show.

Dutchman Patches

Dutchman patches and bow ties for three days straight on this live edge walnut headboard. The “Dutchman patch” is an inlay technique that has been around forever (AKA: butterflies, bow ties, keys, etc) . These repairs and reinforcements are commonly seen on boats, furniture, doors, etc. The photo below shows an antique with some dutchman patches.Dutchman Patch  I’ll post more photos of the headboard when I get it finished.
