In the Packer household, Ocean City NJ lives this unique ‘farmhouse’ stye table. The top is a combination of three slabs of Black Walnut, bookmatched, sitting on an original-design Butternut trestle base, with Black Walnut accents. Please note any chairs or other items of furniture were pre-existing, however the small island countertop at image left was created at the same time.
Next, a true one-off for the Seltzer household in Philadelphia PA, made of two bookmatched American Cherry slabs that each contained a natural split or crotch, where the parent tree had diverged into two trunks. A clear epoxy polymer fills these characterful fissures, and includes them as functional surface areas. There are seventeen ties of spalted Ambrosia Maple securing these spectacular features. The base, while hard to see in its final setting, is strong and minimal, with simple lines and a cantilever design to maximise legroom between the two couches. Again, all other furniture is pre-existing.
