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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This was one of the more spectacular pieces we have been comissioned to make. A client needed a large platform bed and headboard with side tables that would stay out of the way. So we inset them into the headboard to give them a floating appearance. The 12ftx5ft slab is a giant raw edge slab of claro walnut and the plaform is for a king size bed. We also made one out of monkeypod that was equally amazing.
This oval walnut dining table is one of the cleanest designs we have done. Clean from the standpoint that it's nice and simple, small size for our client's kitchen area and a subtle knife edge to go with the client's mid century modern interior. With the small side top, we needed legs that would stay out of the way but still be quite stable for a high use everyday table. So the rectangular tube pi legs seemed to fit the ticket (the symbol for pi upside down - for those of you that don't celebrate March 14th every year with us math nerds).
This was a really nice and clean looking walnut desk with two drawers. The drawer fronts were cut out of one slab of wood so the grain is continuous from panel to panel. The top has a little concealed compartment at the back for cords and other top secret stuff the client that ordered this piece might need to hide.The top is made out of three joined walnut slabs. All in all it makes for a great walnut modern desk.
Our diving board console is one of our longest running designs. A reclaimed wood console with a floating leg is a design that can fit in with a lot of styles, and the combination of the natural raw edge, the solid wood slab and the modern clean look of the lucite leg is also appealing. WE always pay a great deal of attention to getting that mitered cut just right so the grain lines match up: a continuous grain running up the leg and across the top giving the solid wood slab a look of simply being folded over into a table.
