DeConstructed - Pecan & Walnut Table Honorable Mention Award Winner Texas Furniture Makers Show 2015 (available)
This intriguing table employs a deconstructed style by separating the various components into distinct parts creating negative space that redefines the whole. Marine grade sailboat rigging forms a chevron truss that visually anchors the exploding elements into a coherent form.
The top is a gorgeous slab of live edge Texas Pecan from the Brazos River bottom. The natural texture and worm tracks underneath the bark have been carefully preserved to provide visual interest in contrast to the smooth plane of the top.
Surface voids are inlaid in the terrazzo style with jewelry grade Turquoise from the world famous Sleeping Beauty Mine in Arizona.
The shelf and sub-top are beautifully figured American Black Walnut with cloud lift detailing to artfully lighten their visual weight.
The base incorporates a reclaimed cast aluminum stand circa 1940’s that was originally part of a modular system from an innovative but now defunct tool company.
The finish is a European hardwax oil that has been hand rubbed to a satin sheen. 50" Long x 18" Wide x 32" Tall
