Maple Waterfall Edge Coffee Table
Waterfall edge is the name given to a piece where the grain is of the same board is continued at a 90 degree angle to create a leg or reveal.
This piece had the start of a crack, which is normal during the drying process. I have highlighted and stabilised the crack by hand cutting 8 bow ties made from walnut.
The table is finished off with a stainless steel tube leg.
Jim Beam Oak Barrel Drinks Cabinet
If this piece could speak, it would tell some stories. Stamped DSP-KY230, which is the Kentucky Distillers in this case, KY230 is Claremont, Kentucky, a genuine Jim Beam oak barrel. The table top and shelf are made from the bottom of the barrel and is wrapped by 3 of the staves, rich in original colour from its use and blackened over time to give the whiskey that it held that sweet, deep rich flavour.
I can picture the drinks that this piece will now hold, sitting by an open fire.
