Dining Table


I met a sawyer in Vermont and he had some three year old slabs of sugar maple in the yard. They were twisted, so he gave me a deal.


Once I saw the spectacular grain pattern I could not bring myself to rip this beautiful wood into strips to take the twist out.  I cut the 15′ slab in half and joined it down the middle for the ‘flattest’ version I could achieve.


The trestle underneath is a selection of branches and slabs from Michael Burreys yard. Walnut, cherry, elm and holly for the wedges.DSC01822 DSC01826The inital Tung oil finish turned dark and sticky with the years, so now shellac gets its turn. The grain is shining with new glory.DSC01831
