Zelkova (japanese elm) Dining Table, Feb. 2012

Just delivered today (2/26) the latest dining table, in Japanese Elm. The top is a book-matched board of solid zelkova, and leg system of old, reclaimed wood in the same. The legs are hand-shaped, and the decorative fastening blocks are exposed on the outside of the surround apron - where they are usually hidden behind. Will get photos up a.s.a.p. There are also four decorative 'knee-braces' to support the legs, which can be seen in the photos, looking like fiddle heads.

Latest Project, In-House.

I am currently working on three orders: a zelkova (keyaki) dining table; an ash, low chair; and a walnut work desk, with drawers; however, the 'big deal' is that I'm building a building inside of my building, my workshop. It will be a tea and meeting room, with display shelves for latest diminuative works, books, ads, etc. Just a woody, comfy place to get away from the rougher workshop, and have respite, talk, and dream. If you're in the area, feel free to stop by for tea and a look - perhaps even a small purchase!
