Strips are a favorite design aesthetic of mine that shows up frequently in my work. In 2016 I had the opportunity to show at the Nan Miller Gallery in Rochester, NY. Striped Series Coffee table, the original Striped Series Side Table and the original Egypt II were featured in her gallery and the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle wrote an article on it which can be viewed here. https://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/lifestyle/2016/03/18/nan-miller-goes-into-woods-wood-inspired-show/81907424/. This table features one of a kind fiddle back maple and birds eye maple for the legs. A lower rail of solid aluminum connects the legs. This table is long graceful and elegant and features a secret compartment on the top of the large leg. Featuring wipe on polyurethane this table will be durable and last for 100 years. Wikipedia defines durability as the following “durability of a physical product to remain functional with maintenance”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durability
Our furniture including this table are made with traditional joinery ensuring they will last a lifetime. This table uses a round through tenon that is wedged with piece of exotic wood that is driven through the top three turned legs are connected to the top with round tenons and a lower rail of solid aluminum is connected to the legs via cold fastening techniques. The legs also have a top rail assembly that connects with mortise and tenons and a sliding dovetail. The legs are masked, and milk painted with black milk paint creating the striped effect.
