"Lake House" New England Fall Themed Coffee Table With 12v Battery Powered Light.

This is an original design that has been completely hand built from scratch. For the ultimate collector of fine arts...someone who wants to create a warm and inviting environment in their home or office, this work of art is for you. Table comes complete with a 1/4" clear glass top.

This table was built to my specifications by Kids! Making It (KMI), a non-profit organization in downtown Wilmington, NC. The wood is Poplar, and the legs are pine. The table is hand stained with Minwax American Chestnut Gloss, and the fall leaves on the side are a blend of Minwax Spice, Antique Red, and Harvest Grain. The table is finished with two coats of a semi-gloss Polyurethane. It stands approximately 14 1/2" tall, 38" length, and 38" width. Weighs roughly 75 pounds.

After KMI built me the table, I brought it to a local artist and we sketched the interior design. The artist then painted the four walls of the table. Once that was completed, the table was returned to me for the sculpting. The interior is a combination of Sculptamold and plaster of paris, The rocks were made from lightweight hydrocal. The trees are "real" plants that have been grown, cut and dried before each of them was covered by a variety of colored shredded foam. They were then individually placed within the table. The dock is made of hand-cut and stained balsa wood, and a baked clay row boat rests next to it. A lamp with a grain-of-wheat light bulb serves as the dock light. This light is workable with 4 AA rechargeable batteries and battery pack hidden underneath the table and connected with magnets. Another detail of this table is the tire swing.

This entire piece took roughly 180 hours to complete.

All of my tables come with a black metal name plate bearing the Shadowtables logo, and the name of the table. This table is called "The Lake House". If you would like another name-plate attached that is personalized, I can do that too. This table will also come with simple instructions on how to care for your table, how to change bulbs, special offers, and a Certificate of Authenticity.
