These tables are built around a one-of-a kind, flitch-cut hardwood slab stitched with recycled plastic.
Uhuru: Split nearly in two by a dramatic and naturally occurring check, the slab is held together and reinforced by four X-shaped “stitches.” The seafoam stitches (made from recycled plastic) and matching frame create a stark contrast with the chocolate tones of the walnut, highlighting both the natural beauty of the wood and the functionality of the man made elements.
Our large wood slabs are locally milled and dried and come from sustainably harvested trees. Like diamonds, no two slabs are the same. Grain, color and natural characteristics are different with every slab, making each piece unique. We have a regularly changing inventory of sizes and species. Available in custom sizes and finishes. Hand built to order, signed and numbered by the maker in Red Hook Brooklyn and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
