These slabs were such amazing pieces of spalted maple. Instead of bookmatching them, we inverted them so we could save as much of the spalting as possible (to bookmatch them we would have had to cut away a lot). Then we filled in the gaps with a semi-translucent resin to trap everything in place.
A custom (but repeatable of course!) kitchen table with a great looking, non-knee knocking, sturdy stainless steel table base.
This is a single slab of walnut with a nice little pencil drawer and lucite legs to give it that floating in the middle of the room feeling.
This is a giant dining table - 10ft long by 48" wide and made out of one single 16ft long slab. The legs were perfectly mitered to keep the waterfall grain effect on both ends and the raw edges beautifully frame the table.
This was an absolutely spectacular claro walnut slab with amazing figuring throughout the whole piece. We were really happy that this client chose to go wit the straight edge. With all of the acteion going on in the slab, our feeling was having raw edges would have jsut added one too many elements. The Pi legs are cut our of a single slab of steel, then sent to the polisher to get them to a mirror finish, and then off to the plater to get all chromed up.
A bookmatched set of walnut slabs done in an overlaping style where one end overlaps the other in a sort of circular manner. The void in the middle is filled with a tinted resin, lucite legs and the precision of the raw edge overlapping with the other slab is truly incredible.
This was a 14ft long by 4ft wide bookmatched black walnut dining table with live edges on three solid steel water jet cut wishbone legs with a dark bronze gunmetal finish. The client that ordered it was looking for something to fill a large dining space in their new construction home: something modern to fit the space with an organic feel to it. The beautiful grain in the salvaged walnut slabs really helped to soften the clean edges of the clients modern house.
A great reclaimed slab of monkeypod out of the reforestation project we work with in Costa Rica, with our polished chrome U legs made out of a single piece of 3/8" steel flatbar giving it a nice and clean, weld-free modern look to the table. The monkeypod slab has a very light stain on it that the client who ordered and now owns this table wanted in order to reduce - without loosing - the contrast between the white sapwood and the darker brown interior of the slab.
This piece was salvaged from an old redwood root ball that was reclaimed from someone's backyard. Together with our salvager, we picked the area out of the rootball to cut out based on what our client wanted. Then days of cleaning and sanding, and sanding....and sanding. But in the end it came out spectacularily. With all sorts of wonderful redwood burling all over the piece, you get this sort of modern organic look to it: the cut smooth surfaces in contrast to the raw chaos of the root inside the framework of the rectangular cube.
This was a 10ft by 4ft huge claro walnut slab with 1.5" thick lucite legs that we made for client in Texas. She wanted to give it the appearance of floating in her dining room and the lucite legs certainly pulled that off. The slab itself was stunning. We sent her around 5 or 6 slabs to pick from and we settled on this on. Raw or live edges and all the voids and cracks were filled witih a dark resin to make it funcitnoal without loosing the character of the table.
