As promised, I am excited to share with you, readers, some of the photographs that Eoin so skillfully captured of our three live edge tables before they were shipped to South America! The photographs speak a thousand words so I will only label them with a brief description. We are happy and proud to have been commissioned to make these pieces. We hope that they'll be enjoyed by visitors to the Vik Hotels in Chile and Uruguay for years to come. If you're interested, read about the history of the projects from day one in my previous posts: the beginning stages, dovetail bone joinery and oiling, and packing and shipping
Live Edge Bigleaf Maple Burl coffee table with figured, curly Maple base
Curved joint with Maple dovetail bones joining the two Bigleaf Maple slabs together to compose the top of the coffee table
The textured live edge of the Bigleaf Maple slabs with bark removed contrasts perfectly with the straight, angled base
Brown Oak Burl live edge table top with natural voids left in their natural state in the vein of George Nakashima style
Live Edge Chestnut Oak table with turned legs and Walnut dovetail bones
Walnut dovetail bones used to strengthen and ensure the natural splits and cracks don't grow over time
And, finally, the proud Lohr Woodworking team sitting on the finished coffee table to show it's strength and functionality. Cheers to another successfully finished project, gentlemen!
