Stunning Dining Table and Bench set made from a single slab of English Elm on originally-designed bases that are riffs on Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style. The stylized bases are sculptures in themselves - add the gorgeous wood and the set presents as functional art.
The Dining Table is 90" long and 36" wide with live-edges playing along both sides. The wood here is a 2" thick slab of English Elm - particularly hardy, temperature tolerant and use-resistant. It can be finished in a number of ways that lend themselves to your preference for depth of color and for type of use. I finish the wood with triple-sanding/triple-coating to an organic smoothness that is a pleasure to look at and to feel, while respecting and retaining its beautiful natural character
The bases are made from steel plate with fine, clean lines; the legs are hand-bent into gentle arcs. The subtle circles, triangles and vertical lines that compose the bases are inspired by Prairie motifs. The steel can be finished in a number of ways: raw steel that is clear-coated to effect a more industrial look, metallic paint in a range of colors or powder-coated (most beautiful, most durable, most expensive). The set in these images is painted in Dark Steel
How I work with fine wood is to gather your preferences - for species, color-tone, graining - and then do a photoshoot of candidate slabs for you to select from. I obtain these from a specialty lumber barn in the Berkshires, Mass. that carries probably the finest selection of burls and slabs, in a wide variety of species, in the NorthEast
I ship via uShip - safer and less expensive than the big carriers - and will obtain the lowest, most preferential rate for you. I've stated shipping at $400 just for illustration
