Console table in solid Walnut and Sycamore inspired by James Krenov’s furniture.
This console table contains in itself all of my approach to woodworking. The lines are clean, simple. The barely visible flaring of the legs breaks the monotony of the straight lines and humanizes them. All the joints are visible and proud. They call both hand and eye and proclaim that their traditional craftsmanship is alive and well. Their cutting was made with handsaw, chisel, mallet and passion. The use of the continuous grain along the faces of the case made with a single board, the choice of a particularly colored and contrasted board are all details that, to me, take the piece one level up and let the wood express its best.
I cannot express enough my gratitude for James Krenov’s example and inspiration. Watching his pieces is always a lesson in craftsmanship.
Joined with hand cut dovetails and proud crossing wedged through tenons. Oil and lacquer gum finish.
