Contemporary End Table in Carved Ash with Walnut Burl Top

2012 June 22

Here’s a new custom contemporary end table in carved ash with a round table top in walnut burl.  I designed and built this table back in December for a home in Stowe, Vermont.  It is based on a similar but larger and taller pedestal style entryway table I designed and made in 2000.  The carved pedestal is based on my original “Taffy” theme that I have been exploring in my mirror, lamp and table designs.  The base on this end table is carved from Vermont grown ash and has a hand applied clear satin varnish finish, to keep the ash as light in color as possible.  I put a few coats of Danish oil on the table top, to bring out the depth and richness in color of the walnut burl.  After letting the Danish oil cure for about a week, I then put a clear lacquer finish over it.

This piece was fun to build, and I hope to make more end tables like it, maybe in different wood combinations. I am also going to build a variation on this design as a large console table, which will have two carved forms supporting the top.
