The grain of a maple tree slab swirls fluidly, creating unique eye-catching patterns. No two slabs are exactly alike which is why some people feel strongly that they want to see the grain pattern of their slab before they buy it. This is only truly possible if you buy your slab from a large distributor like Berkshire Product.
This ash table was the brainchild of an architect who designed it on behalf of his friend and client for a newly remodeled condo overlooking Boston Harbor. The top is ash with a brilliant white wash. The top has a 45 degree bevel on all sides. The bases were made by a third party vendor, sourced by the architect, and installed and delivered by CHW. There are 50 lb sandbags inside each base, so the table is rock solid.
This table was a lot of fun. It's 60" x 30" with two 16" Extensions that remove completely. We put together a number of whitewashed sprayed samples for the client and she chose her favorites. The grain of the ash is still visible but the spray stain is able to achieve a white wash that is more thorough that you would see with a wipe on stain and clear spray.
When a slab like this one comes through the door of our workshop, it’s pretty clear what our job is: get out of the way. And that’s not just because it was fully fourteen feet by four – it’s because when we see a live-edge slab as beautifully figured as this one, we want to make sure that the wood speaks for itself.
This is an incredible single big leaf maple slab that has been cut into a rectangle with beveled sides and has a really gorgeous same slab extension. The table has a custom tripod pedestal trestle base with a white powder coat, and a lacquer spray finish. The table now lives in an incredible NYC apartment overlooking the Hudson River.
