Wood Side Table

Created by Eben Blaney
The Biped side table reflects both my love of clean angular lines and expressing much with little. It is composed of a leaning, three-sided, tapered post which is cut from a single, large-dimensioned piece of black walnut.

The legs and top rails are made from the cut-offs of the same piece - their surfaces selectively angled like facets to compliment the dynamic stance of the piece. They are connected to the post with mortise and tenon joinery. A 3/16" aluminum plate is mortised into the underside of the 5/8" thick, cantilevered, ash-veneered top, aiding its connection to the top rails by distributing connection points more widely and ensuring the thin top stays flat.

The black is an ebonizing dye and the other colors are custom mixed by the artist and used to pigment a sprayed conversion varnish. All are then sprayed with a clear top coat of the varnish. In all cases the attractive patterns of the deep-grained ash remains highly visible. Blaney's designer and craftsman sides are truly united in order to achieve the spareness and distinctive angularity of this animated little side table.
