Also, as tables are free-standing, the base offers an opening for a
sculptural shape, in simple flowing forms – or whatever may be the
request of the customer.
The table top is an opportunity to show God's artistry in the beauty of
our native timbers, hopefully "book-matched", i.e. the pattern of the
grain is mirrored across the centre of the table. This is something that
people tend to find most pleasing, creating a visual echo and balance.
Satisfaction is also found in creating soft bow edges on sides and ends,
so softening a square or rectangular top.
I also make several other types of furniture (but not everything).
