This dining table is made from carved and painted poplar, and has a thick hard maple top with integral steel reinforcement in the top. This is a small dining table, to seat four very comfortably. This piece can be easily made to support a longer top to seat 6 to 8 people. The maple is Vermont grown sugar maple (hard maple) that is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified sustainably harvested.
The base consists of three individual sculpted forms attached to an arched pedestal. The entire base is made of stack-laminated, kiln-dried poplar lumber. This approach is technically the most structurally sound, and far superior, as it eliminates the possibility of cracking and checking that would happen over time if the carved forms were sculpted from whole logs.
The three large base forms are carved with a combination of hand and power tools, with many, many hours of hand work to achieve the refined sculptural form, and hand carved surface texture.
