Solid Black Walnut dining table with reclaimed beam base, $3000
Trees embody stories. The parent of these two pieces of Walnut suffered a gunshot in the distant past, but healed itself. The shot became subsumed, staining the heartwood almost black as the tree grew on in spite of it. It has been preserved beneath a clear pool of polymer resin, as a reminder of the strength and resilience of Nature in the face of Man.
The top is 32″ wide by 72″ long, ample for four or even six place settings, and is shown with the ‘Isen’ dining chair. The ‘V’ shape of the reclaimed pine beam base keeps the knees free when sitting at the head, and its central layout allows further legroom all around.
