Tyvek (without the logos and printing), tea light candles, and some bamboo skewers. These will hang from our maple trees to welcome winter guests.

A Table Collaboration

Live edge walnut and ash meeting table.

Live edge walnut and ash meeting table.

This table has the mark of two designers and craftsmen on it, and the third makes his mark on it showing his wares and meeting his clients over it. I designed and began the crafting of this table for good friend Tim to use as a small conference and meeting table at his studio. Like most work I take on for family and friends I was completely over committed – but instead of having Tim wait the better part of a year (as he did on his hand joined sycamore and walnut jeweler’s bench) – I collaborated with Chris Harvan to get the project completed. I designed the rough table form in SketchUp then sourced the live edge walnut. While I was working the walnut and making use of an antique 18″ wide jointer, Chris took my design file and tweaked it a bit to include some joinery he wanted to cut and added a repeat of the walnut into the legs. Upon rough joining the table top I handed off the walnut with basic instructions on how I wanted the reversed wane edges to transition to one another, and Chris took over.

The live edges of the top are reversed from one side to the other.
