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.

The San Andreas Table

There are a lot of live edge slab tables on the market these days. So when one of my clients 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 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 is 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 info and pricing, please contact us.

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

Custom Half Moon Bench

I am putting the finishing touches on this custom upholstered Half Moon bench. It ships out the end of this week to a designer in New York. When I told her we could customize the upholstery she had this Pierre Frey linen sent from Paris. This is by far the most colorful Half Moon bench I have done yet. 20150421-221627-80187618.jpgBelow are a couple of shots of the reclaimed oak bench base in process.
