Redgum, black walnut
40" x 23" x 17" 1997
The design for the Redgum Coffee Table evolved from a special plank of colorful red gum, also called sweetgum. Red gum is a common tree from North America. Walnut creates a rich colored border for the top as well as the legs and rails. The legs are 5-sided and attached to the rails with traditional mortise and tenon joinery. The table is finished with a special finishing oil.
