One of a kind oval table made of solid willow oak boards harvested in Carrboro, NC from the “first oak tree planted on Oak Street;” see below for the history.

40” wide by 65” long, 7/8” thick. It will easily seat 6. The table is 29” high with adjustable, padded feet that can be extended about 1/2 inch. The top may be unscrewed from the base for ease of transport.

A distinctive feature of this table is the use in the pedestal of boards that were milled to retain the natural contour or "live edge" of the trunk. The top has a varnish finish; the base is finished with tung oil.

SHIPPING, PLEASE NOTE: I CAN DELIVER IN THE RALEIGH-DURHAM REGION OF NORTH CAROLINA FOR AROUND $50-100, DEPENDING ON DISTANCE. DELIVERY OUTSIDE THIS AREA WILL MOST LIKELY HAVE TO BE BY MOTORFREIGHT AND I WILL HAVE TO QUOTE YOU A PRICE WHEN I KNOW YOUR LOCATION.

IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE MY DELIVERY ZONE PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ONLINE PURCHASE UNTIL I HAVE GOTTEN YOU A SHIPPING QUOTE AND ADJUSTED THE PURCHASE PRICE.

The wood has a special history. Shortly after we moved to our street in July, 2002 we realized that one of our trees was dying due to drought & disease, and would have to be removed. During the removal process our neighbors who had lived here since the early 1950’s told us it was “the first oak tree planted on Oak Street.” Knowing that I was a woodworker they suggested that I get some boards milled from the trunk.

I was able to have the biggest pieces of the trunk sawed into boards in August of 2002. I stickered & air-dried them in a shed & then made this table in 2009. I have had it inside the house since then and the wood is stable.

I have been working in the Triangle area since 1976, designing & making custom furniture and cabinetry as well as doing residential design, set design for theater, and urban design to promote livable & sustainable “transit oriented development.” I work out of a shop at my home.

I will provide my Web address on request if you are interested in viewing a portfolio of my work. I can custom design & make tables & other pieces of furniture to suit your needs.

Please contact me if you want more information about this piece or are interested in getting a custom piece made.
