Levity Coffee Table

The rigid drawbore bridle and mortise and tenon joinery used to make this table allowed me to leave out lower structural components. Along with the floating top design, this opens up the visual space occupied by the piece. I hope this allows the piece to be a pleasing addition to any room while not demanding too much attention.

The name comes from my mindset during the initial design and fabrication stages. I had recently left my career as a New York City 911 paramedic to focus on furniture. It is sometimes easier to feel anger and frustration with the human condition than find understanding and compassion. I think what bridged the gap between these emotions for me was humor. The name plays off the "levitation" of the top but has the hidden meaning that levity is what allowed me to find the peace to create the table.

The peice shown is 48 L x 24 W x 18 T and made of Walnut and Maple
Made to order with customizable dimensions and materials.
