THE STINGRAY LOW TABLE
Starting at $2,500
The Stingray is a low table made of air-dried red oak with steel rods; using a burned umber tone on the pedestal and brackets. This piece uses a double bridle joint on a 25-degree compound rake, with steel rods floating the bridled and routed brackets. These backets are remarkably strong, while allowing the top to breathe and adjust with humidity and remain in plane. The composition is to create a sense of movement, that twitch a stingray makes when lightly startled just flit-gilding away.
FOUR MOON SERIES JUPITER
Jupiter. This low table is made of air-dried walnut with ash legs and a brazed red oak shelf. Air drying brings out a blue-purple in walnut. So, the swirls, volutes, and eddies in the branch wood looked like the equator while the branch pocket became the storm eye of Jupiter. I tenoned the legs to depict the four moons, placing them to evoke the feel of movement.
