New custom project for my most loyal and best client. This dining room table will be constructed of Musical Grade Claro Walnut layed out in a patchwork formation. Each piece was individually selected from Sam Maloof's former lumber supplier for it's unique qualities. Nearly every type of grain pattern can be found within the intricacies of the top. From curl, to fiddleback, marbled grain to burl, calico colouring of greys and golds, crotch, graftline, vertical grain to flatsawn - and everything in between this will be a beautiful piece.
Assembly will be no joke - getting it to the stage you see above - rough cut only - took an entiure evening. Splined joints at every seam for the most durable possible piece. This will either rest over the bronze legs - or a composite of reclaimed fir and fly ash concrete.
Stay tuned for progress on this, a number of other commissions being produced shortly and an architectural millwork project.
