What materials/species were used in this project/item?
Clear Select Walnut
Describe, in detail, the project/item's construction
The table features three separate assemblies built and mitered exactly the same, creating an equilateral triangle. The glass top allows the view of the beautifully created angles from any direction, which makes it an intriguing piece.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
The sharp square edges and the matte clear finish help the table-base mimic the look of steel, these particular qualities add a modern and industrial feel to the room. The ¾” thick glass top magnifies not only the quality but also the impressive geometry of the piece as a whole. As you walk around the table, the miters flow so well it seems as though you are witnessing a three-dimensional M.C. Escher art-piece, making it a must-have for a local Longmont art collector.
