TABLE & BENCH
YEW COPPER TABLE
H 16” | Diam. 35”
Mahogany, Oak, Meranti.
Made from Pallet wood and scrap. She wanted something Celtic for her Irish sweetheart.
H29” | Ellipse, 24”X 38”
A rare find, this driftwood Yew fork came from a local beach. The Yew is a mystical tree said to have powers of rebirth and rejuvenation. It was held sacred by the druids and used in medicines since medieval times and beyond. The English famously used yew wood to make their long bows, so pivotal in the 100 year war. Yew trees often found in European Churchyards.
The alloy balls provide a support structure for the glass without compromising the beautiful weathered
end grain of the wood. They also add the third element to the piece.
H30” | Top 30”X17”
Spalted Maple Driftwood. Glass.
The effect of the stressed grain resembles the lines in the pupil of an eye. The driftwood legs evoke the image of a crowded cocktail party.
NEXT / PREVIOUS PROJECT
H 24” Top | 10”X16” | 2 ¼ “ Th. Reclaimed Fir
I love these tables. We have a couple of them in our living room and they are constantly in use. On a hardwood floor they can be dragged around and brought over a couch to be used for drinks or food but especially for Laptops.
H 29” | 38”X 84”
I have a series or dining tables and coffee tables which use copper or stainless tube at all joints keeping the individual components separate and giving the piece a lighter feel.
Dining tables can be made using three or four boards..
TWO TONE TABLE
H 16” 21”X 52”X2”
Made from a single weathered Fir board with an insert of clear fir palett wood as a contrast.
32”X 80” | 2 ½ “
Installed in a Vancouver Condo.
H 57” | Base 35”X20”X 5”Maple Driftwood and Reclaimed Fir
This Maple root resembled an Orca fin when I first saw it on the beach close to Vancouver. It has not been shaped, only finished.
Cedar Driftwood. Steel. Stone.
The cedar used to create “Watermark” was found on the beach at Esquimalt lagoon. The piece has not been cut and is more or less the same shape and size as when it was found. As is evident from the direction of the grain, the more rounded edge and the underside formed the outside of the base of a large tree, at the point where the trunk spreads and “fingers “ form. Although Some 400 rings can be counted, the total age of the tree in unknown as the piece does not include the centre of the trunk. The overall shapes of the piece, together with the flow of the grain, give the feeling of fluidity and motion. The stone, from the beach at Sooke, accentuates this feeling and completes the trilogy of the elements present. Those of wood, steel and stone.
Any scrap material
I designed these with my daughters in mind. They were always leaning their phones up on things when chatting with friends or watching videos. Blox can hold a phone upright or sideways with the charger connected. The larger multi-dock version keeps the kitchen counter tidy whilst the singles hold your phone on your desk or on your bedside table. Also handy for I-pads.

Tea light candle holders. Sets can be reconfigured or used individually.

This board was the header over a barn door in Southern Alberta. I have used this design for many tables featuring a single reclaimed board.
