We have a parallel production of two tables underway in the shop aboard CAS at the moment.
First a large walnut table top to a client’s design, that will sit on a stainless steel frame that he is building himself. Lovely dark walnut, with the knots filled with epoxy, to be primed with injection epoxy and spray-painted with a soft silky transparent two-pack finish to bring out the deep colours of the wood.
As the other end of the spectrum, and the other end of the shop, a white oak table following a 1970’s design by Richard LaTrobe Bateman, inspired by monastery furniture. All angled mortise and tenon joints, bridle-jointed bearers and buttons, then finished with Skylt to look as close as possible to unfinished oak while protecting the light coloured wood.
