December's Spotlight Piece
Industrial Modern Black Walnut Foyer Table
We had some fun with black walnut burl, glass and salvaged metal.
The burl was salvaged up in Kalama Washington by a friend of the shop. In the detail photos you can see that it has metal in it. This is from power lines that the tree grew around. It's a little bit of the tree's history that we love to leave in.
The base is something we pulled out of the salvage yard. It is a section of a flail used to debark logs. It originally had chains that came through the holes. It is solid steel and very heavy. So far the base has only been sand blasted, but we are thinking to polish it.
We cut the glass to perfectly fit the shape. It is 1/2" thick and follows the curve and form of this extraordinary piece of wood.
The piece is 22" x 42" x 30.5" tall. It is currently for sale online or in our shop.
