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.

Introducing the “Cubodron” Collection

After a lot of blood, sweat, and beers, I’m happy to introduce a new collection of accent tables: the “Cubodron” collection. “Cubodron” is short for cuboctahedron, the name coined by Archimedes for this geodesic shape (6 squares intersecting with 8 triangles). These unique tables are hand-clad with hammered metal on all sides, allowing them to be turned and positioned in any number of different ways. The metal has a beautiful rustic patina and a lightly hammered texture. Available in copper or steel.
