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.
