Kandi Koffee Table

This table is shown in Black Walnut and Maple and with the maple inlay it is kind of an hommage to Wassily Kandinsky who was a Russian born artist who taught at the Bauhaus in the 1920’s and lived most of his life in Europe. Search him on Google and you will see why he is credited with being the guy who invented abstract painting. This, of course, is a simplification as are my inlaid maple lines in the table top. But they really make the piece along with the maple “breadboard” ends and maple tips on the feet. These are great examples of where I’ll be heading with some new works over the next few months. I really love the juxtaposition of disparate materials, you know, the Yin Yang, the duality of light and dark, hard and soft…

The legs and aprons are set off from each other with a ¼” reveal between all mating surfaces and the completed base is assembled with floating tenons and glue. The top is 1 ½” thick Black Walnut glued up from 4 boards in this example and with the angled cuts of the maple ends the top appears to float a bit above the base. The table measures in inches: 60L X 30W X 14H and is finished with a water borne varnish. The Kandi Koffee Table can be made in other sizes and wood species if you so desire. Just make a request…
