LOW STACK TABLE
A low table with a glass shelf, its ends constructed from end-grain squares, allowing you to see the growth patterns of the tree. Its beauty lies in its simplicity. We put one in the Showroom window a while back and it wasn’t there long. The smooth lines of the top are supported by the chequerboard sections at either end which are quite mesmerising to look at. So many trees; so many years of life in nature.
I have long been fascinated by timber’s end-grain. It is the tree’s narrative: looking into the time it’s taken to grow. I was first struck by this while following a lorry stacked with roofing battens up a motorway. I was getting an eyeful of travelling end-grain.
