Giant black walnut live edge dining table

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. 

Live edge monkeypod slab with chrome U legs

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.

Reclaimed Redwood Root Console

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.

Claro walnut dining table, raw edge with lucite legs

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.

Walnut modern lace room divider panels

These are a pair of 10ftx2ft walnut panels carved out of two large slabs of joined walnut, then painstakingly grinded and sanded on both sides, each hole for hours and hours...and hours until we got to this result. The only downside is we were not able to photograph them with finish on before we shipped them to the client that ordered them because their installer was finishing them on site. The good news is they are orderable in any size and if you don't want to finish them we will do it happily for you. That way we can get a better picture for our web site.

Claro Walnut dining table with infinity leg

A straight and raw edge claro walnut slab with a waterjet cut infinity leg dining table.  The giant slab of walnut had quite a few curves to it so if we had left it all as a raw edge, people would have been facing each other at sort of Picasso like angles around the table.  So instead we scribed a rectangle on the slab according to our client's dimensions, and anything that fell within that rectangle was legt raw, and anything that was outside got cut into a straight line, creating a great combination of raw edge and straigth edge for this walnut dining table.

Bookmatched walnut top with chrome tree leg base

This was a spectacular bookmatched walnut dining table with an ebony stain, and of couse a pretty stunning chrome stree leg base.  The base was cut in three parts out of a 2" thick slab of aluminum on a cnc water jet machine.  Then each piece was hand sculpted, cut, ground, polished, fit together, polished again and then sent to the chroming place.  Honestly it's a ton of work and marginally enjoyable but totally worth it in the end.

Mango Wood Desk with Lucite Legs

This is a salvaged mango wood slab desk that we cut three straight edges and left one raw edge with a nice curve on the side of the desk you would sit at.  There is a really nice pencil drawer and the thick lucite legs with polished edges make the whole piece look like its floating.  Like all of our pieces, this was custom built for a client and we can make one for you in a variety of woods, sizes and stains or you can just say "ditto" and we will make you the same thing.

Bookmatched white oak dining table with steel U legs

Ok, I have to start out by saying I had to be dragged into the idea of doing anything in oak. As a product of the 80's and 90's I have a visceral reaction to red oak - and not the good kind of visceral reaction. But one of our suppliers re-educated me on oak. He showed me some spectacular white oak slabs - which is a very different beast from what I was expecting. White oak dining tables can can some of the most amazing wood grain, figuring, and individual nature of any woods we work with.

Walnut stick drum tables

These little drum side tables where made out of tons of scraps of walnut from all of our other projects. Now in designing these pieces, I thought using scrap meant cheap and easy with a good look. Not at all the case - at least from the work standpoint. Imagine all the various widths, legths and thicknesses and conditions of all of the cutoffs, then having to mill each one down to the same size and what you initially think is going to be a nice and easy reuse design project turns into this long production line. In any case, the result is a really pretty little walnut drum side table.
