This table is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for being made of wood that was harvested in a sustainable manner from well managed forests. This claim can be verified by independent third party audit under our Smartwood chain of custody certificate #SW-COC-000055.
This table is also Greenspec listed on my website.
The Bow Tie table, as shown, measures 15-7/8" x 15-7/8" x 18-1/2" high. The wood used is known as Chaquiro, and it is a lesser known species of mahogany that originates from an FSC certified forest in Brazil. The use of this wood helps sustain the livelihood of an indigenous community living along the banks of the Amazon River by providing a tangible incentive for them to manage their surrounding forests sustainably, rather than clear-cutting to make way for alternative uses such as agriculture.
The wood top has been configured into a diamond matched pattern, and the collar in the center of the table is made of Black Walnut.
Inlaid into the face of the base is a small convex inlay of a wood called Narra, and it carries a special provenance in the world of sustainable forest management. The actual wood used to make this inlay comes from the last remaining board known to exist of the very first wood to be sustainably harvested on the Solomon Islands in the early to mid 1990s. This wood made its way into North America by way of Eco-Timber in California.
This table has been individually crafted on a bench by hand, and is dated, numbered and signed.
Custom sizes are also readily available. The Bow Tie Table can also be made in other species of woods.
Dimensions: 15-7/8" x 15-7/8" x 18-1/2" high
