Black beauty. Wonderfully bespoke and mysterious. This deeply figured table was created from an old apricot tree that was felled in an Eagle, Idaho yard many years ago. It was dried and stored in a wood shed, where we found this richly detailed slab.
Apricot wood is a hardwood and is closely related to cherry, but is actually harder and more rare. Working with this slab has been a joy, since it is so uncommon and has such a compelling linear grain. Of particular interest is the curly bark - a feature that we left intact for intrigue.
The rounded apricot island slab is "marooned" in a metallic caviar black epoxy, adding a restrained moodiness to this intriguing wood.
The epoxy river was created with EcoPoxy™ Liquid Plastic - the most eco-friendly epoxy resin on the market.
To finish this singular table, we used Odie's Oil, a food-safe, non-toxic old-world formula that is renown among woodworkers and artists. Odie's also protects the surface from stains, moisture and water.
Handcrafted steel legs anchor the dark top, retaining its mysterious and design-centric vibe.
Dimensions: 23" long X 15 5/8" wide X 1 1/8" thick X 20 3/8" high
OUR PROCESSAll items are handmade in Boise, Idaho using reclaimed and sustainably sourced hardwoods. We design and create each table from scratch, selecting each piece of wood for it's unique grain and character, then prep and create each item with a meticulous fabrication and finishing routine until it's perfect. Each piece is made with pride and designed to reflect its own individual character. This means that each piece will be unique and there will be slight variations from the photos.ABOUT THE WOODWe source urban rescued wood, which means that the trees used were felled electively by homeowners and businesses due to space constraints or minor damage. We work with local mills and arborists to ensure the trees were sustainably salvaged right here in the Treasure Valley or in nearby Eastern Oregon.Once milled, the wood is air-dried for over a year and then kiln-dried for optimal moisture content and usability.ABOUT THE EPOXY RESINWe exclusively use EcoPoxy, the most eco-friendly epoxy resin on the market. It is made from natural materials. It doesn't smell or off-gas and is people and pet-friendly (environmentally friendly, allergy friendly, no VOC once dried and non-toxic).SHIPPINGShipping times are generally 4-5 business days nationwide, but can be less if we are shipping in the West. We might use UPS or an independent freight LTL carrier. Once you place your order, we custom-build a crate that will ideally suit the piece(s) and be very consciously packed for safe shipment. We will inform you of the shipping details and ask that you be available to receive the shipment when it arrives.CUSTOM ORDERSThis is a listing for a finished table, but we can custom-make a table to your specs.
