Redwood dining table

Several years ago Marcin came to my store & purchased a large second growth redwood burl coffee table that I had in my showroom. I recently received a call asking if I could create for him a redwood dining table. I’ve made several redwood desks in the past, so the concept would be the same but instead of seating one it needed to seat 4. He chose a very unique slab that had an irregular shape & a few internal cavities which he wanted left open…the more natural the better.5-1-14 109The next thing was to come up with the proper bases that would accommodate the top. Fortunately, I had quite a few driftwood stumps that I had set aside for floor lamps so I selected 2 of those that would work.  Once they were trimmed down & leveled the table began to take shape.DSC_0188DSC_0198DSC_0215As I do with all my customers, but especially with a piece as unusual as this one, I keep them updated with pictures as the table progresses. Marcin was very patient with me but finally I had something to show him.DSC_0302DSC_0304 redwood dining table DSC_0303He hasn’t been able to drive up yet to it pick it up, but I’m anxious to get some pictures once he has it in its new home.DSC_0305
