These tables are the result from a gift of some 1000yr old 1/4 inch thick bookmatched pieces of Redwood. A guitar maker neighbor had these pieces for many years without being able to use them. He needed at least 1 inch thickness to work with. The challenge was to find the best showcase for the wood as well as preserve and protect the very delecate samples. The Bronze “Bezel” surrounding the Redwood did just that.
All the flutes were cut first on the table saw, veneered then all glued together. The oval void was then cut out.
The tops are mirror finished with lacquer and the bases are finished with tung, varnish and turpentine.

Are the bronze rims cast, or did you bend the metal? (I don't know much about bronze, but would like top learn more).
Beautiful both design and execution. I love the fluted bases -- adds lightness and eye-catching detail.
My wife's a photographer. I'm very lucky.
Amazing work...beautifully photographed.
These are beautiful Omar. I just want to dip my fingers in that redwood!
