This slab low table resembles the fabled starship in form and function. The design is an exploration of frontiers in engineering and materials. It is daring in its geometry - the single, angled pedestal base floats the hefty salvaged walnut top over the brushed copper lower shelves. The top is a salvaged bastogne walnut slab, uber dense but with incredible grain character: varying from the grey and brown grain on one side to the undulating beige ribbon striping on the other. Copper is a complementary metal companion to walnut. The challenge, in this case, was to display the copper in a way that does not draw attention away from the slab top. Hence, the the matte brushed finish and the playful walnut stitches joining the two metal shelves.
A table that is both angular and delicate and playful in its character. Strong with the perception of lightness. A mixing of materials and styles - a true woodworking enterprise.
