White Oak Table Set
Woodworker: William Walker“To read Jim’s books is a treat, but to work alongside him was very special,” Walker says. “He had great instincts in combination with plenty of energy.” Although Krenov rarely made tables and chairs, Walker feels this white-oak set was made with a very Krenovian approach. The shape of the top is taken from the curving grain of the wood, the arching stretchers relate to that grain as well, and the thickness of the top and stretchers changes between the legs. Walker builds furniture and does architectural commissions.
