The first original design in our signature series of handcrafted fine furniture.
This beautiful Coffee table has a 1 1/4” thick wavy big leaf Maple top arranged in our signature clockwise pinwheel pattern, inspired by the whirlpool action in our coastal waters. The subtle edge treatment softens it to the touch and accentuates the fabulous grain details of this wonderful local wood. The hefty reverse tapered legs reflect the sturdiness of the base, much like our local iconic trees. The pillowed tops on the legs meld with the cloud lift top rails, creating the image of a floating top. The negative space where top gable rails normally would be allow, the plate glass top inset to project light onto the base again emphasizing the details and wonderful grain of the Maple. All base pieces are connected with mortise and tenon joinery for a lifetime of sturdy construction.
Finally the triple stretcher connection is a precise half-lap detail with pillowed ends that expose the end grain of the wood.
When crafting this coffee table entirely out of wavy or figured maple adding yew wood embellishments sometimes can distract from this busy wood. However using more plain grain woods details like cuffs can compliment the piece.
We can customize a piece just for you by interchanging various woods and details.
