Our typical manufacturing process is to determine the furniture piece we need, then find the perfect material to build it. But occasionally it works in reverse – we come across lumber so distinctive and beautiful that we design a piece to build using it. So was the case with Spalted Maple Live Edge Dining Table.
Back in January we saw Goby’s Instagram post of these incredible Spalted Maple live edge slabs. We thought the best way to highlight the rich beauty and character of the Spalted Maple was a live edge dining table with a black solid steel base from Ingot Furnishings.
Working with Spalted material is challenging as the properties of the material are quite different from our standard wood species. Throughout the process, Levi, one of our skilled Table builders, did an amazing job of determining the material layout and placement of the Wenge butterflies.
Once finished, the warmth of the Oregon Maple showed through and we decided to pair this piece with our new Kenton dining chair (soon to be online) in Cherry. See photos of our process to create this one-of-a-kind piece, including the original photo from Goby Walnut. To see it in person please stop our SE Woodstock showroom before it finds it forever home.
