-Commission project for a Texas couple who bought a house in North Idaho. They told me they wanted an entry table with straight, clean lines.
-The elliptical shape in the legs echos architectural details in the ceiling and light fixtures in the entry room.
-The trees represent the forests in North Idaho.
-The shelf honors the wife, a retired nurse. It’s made from Alder wood- a medicinal wood used to fight infections.
-The two orange Tamarack trees in the table are for the couple. They will move to Idaho after the husband retires in a few years.
-The husband wondered if he should be the tallest tree in the table. He isn’t, but he is taller than all the trees around him.
Notes: Do not use liquid cleaner on the wood. Dust with dry cloth/duster only. Spray glass cleaner on a towel away from the table. Glass top lifts off.
