Custom Lectern for a Special Book
This walnut lectern was for a dictionary of sentimental value. The client had envisioned that the book would lay open, so the angle at which the book would sit was first measured before crafting the piece. The drawer was for the accompanying magnifying glass.
The ``anvil`` Table
This piece is made of Wenge, a very durable wood that is naturally dark in color. It was crafted for a client who wanted a low table for eating (Japanese style, while sitting on the floor). The sides were curved to fit people seated at the table. The overall design was conceived as a complement to the client’s existing Nakashima wooden rocking chair.
