Almost Square Home Furnishings
These pieces are free-form, slab-wood tables with uniquely designed legs and feet. Each piece is a one of a kind work of art. Some are coffee tables in height others are end tables.
Spalting and the wood's grain create wonderful visual effects. Worm holes and splits (some filled others open), bark edges and knots enhance each piece.
The slabs are Ash, Cherry, and Maple and two inches, more or less, in thickness. Legs and other detailing might be Pine, Walnut, and Tulip Poplar.
A clear urethane finish allows the grain and other details to make their visual statement.
