a second, and quick to construct, table this week (and for sale over here).
the main beam of this table i have had sitting in my woodshop for probably 5 years. at various times i thought about making a linear mancala board from it or a candle holder to run down the center of a dining table.
much to my surprise, once i planed it, i discovered it to be chestnut. i decided only to plane the top and ends, leaving the rest rough and urban. i should like to think this table has some japanese sensibilities: two ceramic bowls perched at one end (for keys or whatever you might like to store on a table like this), legs slightly tapered, this table is constructed from reclaimed chestnut and reclaimed pine. 56" x 7" x 29"h.
