Woodworker: Seth Deysach

This table was built to sit next to an original Eames lounge chair. Janet Rooney, of j rooney design, created the design to complement the mid-20th-century style of the iconic chair. Then Deysach was commissioned to build it. He used MDF and poplar as substrates under the Santos rosewood veneer and lined the drawers with leather. The finish is catalyzed lacquer and wax.
