The lumber for this table was milled from a very large, very awesome wild cherry tree that had died and fallen in the timber behind my childhood home in Iowa. My dad cleared a path to the tree and pulled the logs out with his tractor. We milled the lumber together and I brought it back to Kansas to be dried.
Two live edge slabs were glued up to make the table top and I fabricated a large tube steel freestanding base. The fine grain of the cherry wood becomes even more beautiful with age and pairs perfectly with the natural patina finish used on the base.
