Unique Furniture for Sale
Except for the Memorial Bench, a commission, all the following pieces were designed and built as portable show pieces of innovative design and expert execution. One design led to another. The Maple Padouk table begat the Walking Table which then led to Walking Together and Tutu Table. And there are 20 more variations floating around my mind, just waiting for the spare time or the commission to build them. That's where you come in.
Maple Padouk Table 16"x20"x30" - 2nd prize winner in woodworking at the 2006 Marin County Fair, inspired by Florentine designs and figure drawing.
The legs are Padouk, provided by sustainable West African forests, the quilted maple top is extraordinary and rare.
SOLD - a similar design is available on a custom basis.
