Project Information

The shape of the distinctive slats gave inspiration for the naming of this table. Built out of curly cherry, maple, and ebony inlays, the Hourglass Table is a example of how a simplistic design can be altered to create an extremely enjoyable piece of Functional art. This Piece was finished with a hand rubbed oil .

Very clean lines. I like the ebony inlays being diamonds as opposed to squares.

Very nice. I like how you did what I'm guessing are the pegs that go in the tenons? Attractive either way. Thanks for sharing.

Brian, You might add to that phrase that pays more than minimum wage. :) You have a great eye for color balance. The work is subtle and inviting. The eye is held as I look over your piece. A wow piece. Frank Savage says "wow" means "I wish I made that" I love to find artists like you becuase it helps me get through the jobs I hate . LOL! Paperwork…....

I like the use of wide splats in tables and chairs. The hourglass shape really works on that piece.
Nice design.

Looks good. Wife's been wanting a sofa table for a while now. This might just do the trick.
