Several months ago a lady brought me a slab cut from a very old white cedar tree.  She knew a man with a sawmill and he gave it to her about 35 years ago.  She had it stored in her barn all this time and intended to have something made with it.  She recently sold her home and while cleaning out the barn she was reacquainted with the old slab.  She said, "When I saw it, I knew exactly where to take it!"  She was right!


It seems like the late George Nakashima, who was a renowned furniture maker, famous for his slab tables, was right on his table base designs.  This white cedar slab deserved one of Nakashima's base designs.  We made the base from a walnut slab, the favorite wood choice of George Nakashima.


The shape of the top is fantastic!


The shapes within the grain are beautiful!  This coffee table was sold before it was built.  A real beautiful art form!


However, we recently built another similar coffee table with a roundish maple slab top.  Again we have incorporated a Nakashima design walnut slab base.


The top has a beautiful grain definition with plenty of character.  As all our creative art furniture, it is also one-of-a-kind and currently for sale in our gallery showroom!
