Walnut table

Walnut table

My clients wanted a custom table/ art piece for their new waterfront home. It’s fairly large, at 44″ × 13′-6". I got them to supply the pebbles from the beach and we did the “river” table. I wanted it to be more subtle than the typical river tables so I found some really large slabs and connected them at the ends. The one leg is a metal tree. The branches reach out and provide support. After I leveled the branches, I bolted on a large steel plate to provide additional support. The tree has a square steel pocket that receives the wooden bottom rail. The other leg is made with rectangular tubing and has a matching section of the slabs from the top floating in the center. The bottom rail is through mortised in a traditional trestle table joinery technique. There is metal supports tucked under the top that also have levers that I drilled and tapped into the steel so I could fine tune the slab. I used EcoPoxy for the “river”


Design is so balanced yet bold. Love it!

Very nice! Not just another river table, nope.

The early bird gets the worm but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.

Yup…like it or not, it’s definitely a unique piece



When I saw the river, it looked like the branch from beneath was breaking through the wood above.
Amazing. LOVE IT

oh to have my home filled with creations such as this… bring me nature, in any form, of any materials. Beautiful connection with nature.

Beautiful figure in your slabs, and the subtle river is splendid. I really love the tree leg- did you sculpt/cast it yourself? Every element here is so thoughtful, and make for a truly and unique piece. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Cindy. Yes I designed and built the whole thing. The tree is sculpted from steel plate and pipes, not cast. Have a peak at the metal working section on this site. I have a few pieces on there. cheers


Sweet Looking Table!

Beautiful to say the least.
It must have been a lot of fun figuring out that front leg.


Tor and Odin are the greatest of gods.

Thanks Madts, that was the fun part of the piece, for sure. Figuring out the size etc and making sure it wasn’t tippy (that top is freaking heavy!)
