Cycle Of Life
I was asked to design two end tables. One stipulation was given. They were to have Gingko leaves as the theme. I worked with Myron Hanson an artist that specializes in metal work. We each came up with ideas for our part of the project. I settled on a “cycle of life” theme for the large table, and a fall look for the smaller table.
I started with some hand sketches. Refined them to the look I was after. Then drew them into a software program. I wanted to use a Laser to cut out the field. I used another software program to layout the tables and the field veneers. Once those were cut. I switched over the hand marquetry part. The small table I cut all by hand with a fretsaw. The larger table I ran programs that did all the parts on the laser. Once I had the tops completed, Myron had the bases done. Put the 2 together and they accent one another wonderfully.
Woods used are a waterfall bubinga. Curly/quilted Maple. Various dyed veneers and some other natural veneers used for the color I required.
