Kirlew Bench/Table

An arborist/sawyer in Eastern Pennsylvania said to me ‘can you do anything with this piece of black cherry?’ He had been experimenting with non-traditional cuts (this piece is cut at a 45 degree angle through the junction of main trunk and large branch- this is the cause of the bark pocket in the center-right of the table left hand picture). The Nakashima look-alike makers of the east thought it was too warped to be used, but I think the warp, figure and complex grain structure are complementary. Red maple legs with black walnut wedges. Once in a while there is a piece of wood that has its way. L 60 x W 26 x H 18.
