Storm table unites form and function with Northern Catalpa (top) and Ash (base) producing a pleasant working piece of art. I designed the piece to use wood that I had rescued. I chose to use a clear hand rubbed finish to enhance the natural beauty of the wood.
One day while I was in my working in my studio I heard a chainsaw, so I walked across the street to find that a tree surgeon was cutting down a Northern Catalpa. I asked him if I could have the lumber. He was curious what I would do with it, so he came to see my studio and then offered to mill the wood. Two years later, Storm emerged.
