Woodworker: Jason Klager
Klager was inspired to build this entry table (14 in. deep by 38 in. wide by 29 in. tall) after watching floating luminarias during a lantern festival. He used maple for the table's main components and afromosia and canarywood for the lantern boxes. The pierced patterns on the lanterns are transferred from an image of the vascular system of a leaf and become visible when the lanterns are lit. The finish is equal parts Waterlox, tung oil, and mineral spirits.
