Wood Console Table
Created by Eben Blaney
This piece was in part inspired by the artist's boat building heritage. An amazingly beautiful solid 3-inch tiger maple top with hand-shaped/curved underside and front, and beveled ends and back edge. Finished with durable, clear water white varnish, it is fit and attached to mating, hand-sculpted black walnut base which acts as a cradle. The base components are joined with blackwood pegs and exposed splines. Exposed tenons help create the joints where rails under top connect to two leaning uprights at the front and back. Base has hand rubbed oil finish.
