Sculptures

I finished a couple of sculptures this week. These were carved from root balls I salvaged from a burn pile.

You can read the story behind the Adelaide series and see photos of the whole process on my website: http://www.benridderingdesign.com/sculpture

Live Edge Coffee Table

organic modern coffee tableI came across this monolithic slab of walnut half buried in the mud at a local mill. It was soaking wet, completely weathered, and had some bug issues. The slab was 7″ thick, but I had to remove a full inch in order to clean it up and flatten it.  coffee table slab flatteningimg_1973

I used reclaimed douglas fir blocks for the base, and finished them with an ebonizing process.

The coffee table finished out at 60″ long, 18″ wide, and 15″ hi.

Each San Andreas table is unique because the meandering joint line that runs down the center is dictated by the natural edge (live edge) of the slabs. For pricing and details contact us.
