Wedding Coffee Table

A commission for a wedding gift. With the groom being an AFL fan, the English Elm timber rescued from the MCG gives this table some additional meaning. The lighter blonde strip on the top and the bent pieces in the base are Silky Oak.

The bending was done by cutting the Silky Oak into 3mm thick strips, and placing them under tension around a specially made form. Once the glue dries, the pieces spring back slightly to their final shape.
