Bloodwood Butterfly Table

Design elements: When we selected the Bloodwood material for this project, one board with an unusual pattern on it stood out – a pattern that resembled half a butterfly. That was selected as the focal point of the piece and the rest of the table designed around that theme. The curved shape of the legs and the curves in the one shelf play into that butterfly shape and also lend themselves to the nature of the material. The shelf was beveled on the bottom side to give it a thin appearance without compromising its strength, since it also serves as a brace for the legs. Oddly enough, there are 26 individual boards in this table, but there is only one that does not have a curve of some sort cut into it.

Dimensions: 36" x 48" elliptical
