SORRY, these sold almost instantly. We can make a pair of them for you
About 1 in 100 Oak trees that we saw has a unique "spiral" grain pattern in addition to the medullary ray pattern that is enhanced by quartersawing. After 33 years of sawing my own lumber. I can tell by looking at the bark of a tree if it will contain spiral grain.
We set aside our unique grain boards, and utilize them as accents in some of our case work. Because it is so unusual, and so scarce, we rarely have enough to do a piece as large as a bed or dresser. More often than not, we will include it as bookmatched panels or slats in casework or a headboard gallery.
These little gems were built COMPLETELY from spiral grain quartersawn oak. We decided to feed the audience that was eager for a radically unique piece.
It is so difficult to achieve the balance that we like with exotic grain. One panel will not quite balance another.....one side will be stronger visually than its opposite. These tables got about as close as we could get. If you look, the grain is not only harmonized on each stand, both of them complete a visual bookmatching as a pair.
WE ONLY GET TO MAKE A PAIR OF THESE ABOUT EVERY THREE YEARS. They are so visually complex and stunning that we always hope that they go in a bright room, and can be seen from many angles.
ALL spiral grain use is on an "as available" basis. If you would like us to use unique wood in a piece, please request that at the outset, and we will check the availability.
