This is a piece of furniture that people can't help but stare at because the top surface of this maple slab is almost completely spalted creating a 'canvas' of images, shapes and forms. With a piece of wood like this, a casual glance never satisfies initial curiosity, it takes a more concerted inspection to fully realize the beauty of this wood.
The most fascinating creations are dark lines, usually black, that look like free-form art made by someone using a calligraphy pen to create images containing caricatures, faces, profiles, animals and what ever else you can imagine. Everyone sees something different.
With the top slab almost 2 inches thick, this table is a piece of furniture that ‘begs’ for attention. Not only is its unique beauty fascinating to look at but the top surface is polished to a texture so smooth that the sensation of your fingers gliding over its surface is almost addicting. Every time you pass this table, you’ll want to touch it.
A piece of maple this size, completely spalted is a rare find.
