'Drift' Occasional Table in ebonised Plane & Lacewood
The top of this table is initially ebonised with an iron and vingar solution, which colours the London Plane timber a dark grey colour. The surface is then hand carved with a gouge chisel, which takes most of a day and is undertaken in one session, producing a spontaneous and unique pattern. The process reveals the original grain figure of the timber, which contrasts beautifully with the ebonised colouration.
The frame and legs are constructed with half-joints and strengthened with dowels.
