18 HOLES (available) “Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated.” Arnold Palmer
This quote is perfect to describe our one-of-a-kind coffee table created for anyone who enjoys spending a little time hitting the links. A unique piece of functional art, the original design successfully combines sleek modern styling with familiar elements from the game.
The top is Black Walnut and inspired by a golf club head. The silhouette of a golfer is inlaid using Curly Maple. Grooves along the top mark the fairway and lead to a recess in the green where you can display your favorite memento ball. The ball is not attached and can be easily replaced by one special to you.
The base is composed of a chevron leg featuring 18 holes, the piece’s namesake. It is made from Curly Maple with a Black Walnut stripe to divide the front nine from the back nine.
The opposite leg is shaped to show the arc of a ball descending on a flawless line to that elusive magical Ace. Polished stainless steel is suggestive of a gleaming club shaft and adorns layers of Black Walnut and Curly Maple.
Underneath the top, custom-crafted steel mounting plates provide for wood movement and allow the piece to be disassembled for shipment or storage. The steel is professionally powder coated for longevity.
All design work was done using CorelDraw and Sketchup. All woodworking was accomplished with conventional shop tools and without the use of a CNC router or Shaper Origin. The wood finish is a European hardwax oil that has been hand rubbed to a satin sheen.
This is a one-of-a-kind piece intended for a golf enthusiast or collector of fine handcrafted studio furniture.
