The fundraiser was for The University of Vermont Medical Center Children’s Hospital and took place earlier this month in Lake Placid, NY. This interview was taken a few years ago when my business was still located in Vermont. I was honored to take part in such a great cause.
This new side table design incorporates a solid glass table top, sculpted walnut and curly maple base with a curly maple finial. I wanted to show off the flower like appearance of the base with the use of glass versus wood. I think the result is stunning.
The challenge with this design was finding an invisible way to attach the glass to the wood base. Through trial and error I finally found a super strong, crystal clear silicone based product that works perfectly.
Thanks to the Maine Crafts Association and all the nice folks who stopped by the booth!
This was a custom job for a client out in California. The entire table is finished in Danish Oil. For the top/shelf I used a gel urethane topcoat for added durability.
