Beech is usually a plain coloured wood but attack by a long-dead fungus creates these unique patterns called spalting. It changes the colour of the wood and adds interesting black lines. The shape of the table top retains the natural or live edge outline of the log it was cut from.
The sturdy single leg has been charred then brushed, sanded and sealed. This raises the wood grain making it very tactile. Don’t worry, you won’t get sooty fingers!
The other support leg has been carved with a chainsaw to resemble bark, adding textural interest.
The table has been sealed with a hard wax oil for a subtle mid sheen finish and has non-marking, rubber feet.
The dimensions are approximately;
- 3′ or 90 cm long,
- 18″ /45 cm at its widest point, tapering down to 13″ or 33 cm,
- 18″ or 45 cm tall table top, the long, single leg is 22″ or 55 cm tall
- The top is 2″/5 cm deep.
The wood used was recycled from a fallen tree near Tynwald hill.
