Console Tables

From the Juglandaceae family, Juglans Cinerea and Carya Ovata, a single White Walnut and Hickory tree provided the wood for both tables. They were built of storm-damaged trees and repurposed steel using a combination of handheld tools such as a rare 114-year-old ribbed-bottom Stanley Bailey No.7 wood plane, and modern power tools like the amazing Miller welder. In order to give designers more flexibility, the tops can be interchanged.

"These pieces are remarkable to the eye and brain because where the viewer would expect to see two support points, they see one, and when expecting to see one element, such as a remarkable piece of wood, they see two. And where there should be chaos and polarity, one finds harmony and equilibrium.”
