Red Modern Table

This project, dubbed the Red Modern Table by the client, represents my first project completed here on CustomMade, and I have to say that it was overall a very positive experience. It becomes clear from looking at the other items in my portfolio that this design is quite a departure from anything else I've done, and therefore serves to showcase my versatility.

Aside from the front and back edges of the top, which are at 90 degrees, there are no other angles that are "normal", with most of them having to be calculated to 1/10th of a degree. This made figuring the cuts very tedious, especially when it came to keeping the top in a parallel plane to the floor, and having the assembly sit without teetering or rocking. I'm quite proud to say that I met the challenge head on and am very pleased with the outcome.

This version of the table is fully veneered on all faces (yes even the back edges and underside of the top) with quilted maple veneer. I think the combination of the straight lines and varied angles, with the outstanding figure of this particular veneer are very complimentary to one another. The finish consists of a primary red dye stain and a top-coat of high gloss lacquer. The table sits 32 inches tall, is 15 inches deep and approximately 44 inches at the widest point.

Any or all of the design elements can be customized, from the overall dimensions, to the veneer type, the stain color, the gloss of the topcoat, and yes, even the angles!

    I am thrilled with the work by James. He was always in communication with me from the very beginning and turned my vision into a fabulous piece of not just furniture but ART! I would definitely recommend him no matter what your style preferences are. I happen to live about 90 minutes from James and he hand delivered my finished piece to my home which is a total bonus! James takes pride in his work and hopefully I will have the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
