Douglas Fir Side Tables

An innovative range of 3 side tables by Gavin Coyle. Simple in form, real value is added as a result of the innovative way in which the tables are made. Each is produced from a single plank of Douglas Fir, a timber know to have distinctive grain character due to being a fast growing specie. I have admiration for those who choose not to play it safe with their timber selection, it would have been oh so easy to have produced some nice American Black Walnut or White Oak side tables here.

My favourite, the Jac 1 Table shown below.

Below a close up of the grain, I can imagine it took a great amount of skill and hard work to achieve such a result.
