About This Project
This is a Mid-century modern Walnut slab live edge coffee table, inspired by a George Nakashima design.
The base features maple laminations for the jointing of the two large pieces, sliding dovetails, and keyed through tenons. Once more, this piece is all wood, no metal was used. The top has two hard maple bowties which add a nice aesthetic, but also act to restrict a split that naturally occurs from the crotch cut slabs.
This piece is finished simply with natural shellac to bring out the woods grain and figure, then multiple coats of protective polyurethane.
Dimensions are approximately 48″x17″x16″.
