This coffee table is contemporary, modern, organic and boldly fascinating. I started with a large live edge slab of Big Leaf Maple Burl that was packed with figuring. The wooden top contains curl, tiger striping, birds eye, chatoyance, a void that goes through the surface and the round/ bumpy textures along the natural edges that are commonly found on burls. Through experimental dyeing and tinting processes, the top resembles something out of this world. It looks more like a meteorite than a slab of wood. For this reason, I selected the acrylic bases (lucite). The combination of mediums gives the appearance of a floating coffee table (or traveling meteorite). The wood has been flattened, sanded smooth and finished in a high gloss poly to accentuate the natural character and coloration. The golds, blacks, browns and tans dance across the top and demand attention. If seeking something truly unique that is impossible replicate, that makes visitors stop in their tracks to admire and that you can feel proud using in your home, then look no further. Feel free to contact me in request of additional photographs or questions pertaining to this exquisite piece. The coffee table is much larger than it appears in the pics and requires two people to lift. Measures max 35" x 32" 18.25" H. The wooden top is a whopping 3.75" thick.
