I was recently contacted by clients who had a beautiful old Maple tree in their backyard which sadly fell down. They couldn't bear the idea of parting with it, so they decided to do something special with the wood. They loved my Farmhouse Dining Table - one of the most popular pieces of handmade custom furniture I have designed - and asked me to make one for their Glover, VT home. It was important to work with the character of the wood by utilizing the knots, the color inconsistencies, and imperfections to make a totally unique and beautiful table top. I used a tinted epoxy to fill in the knots and imperfections, then sanded everything perfectly smooth. The result is a one-of-a-kind, beautiful dining table with incredible character.
