View #1 - I call this my “Large Tumbling Block” table. The pattern on table is the “Tumbling Block” quilt pattern. The table stands 30” tall and is 47 1/4” wide and 54 ?” long. There are almost 6000 pieces on the entire table. The pieces are used over the edge and onto the pedestal and feet of the table. The table is finished in its natural color with 6 or 8 coats of varnish. After the varnish hardens for at least a month, I level it and buff it to a high shine. The pieces are a bit over 3/16" thick, glued onto a Baltic Birch base, so they hold up much better than a thin veneer. The pattern has the illusion of a lot of blocks but there are as many stars as there are blocks. The design forces you to see the blocks. On each diamond, if you go to the side you are in the middle of a block. At each point you are in the middle of a star that has 6 points. The type of wood is listed on the bottom of the table usually from the center out but on this pattern all 3 kinds of wood are equally close to the center. On this table the light wood is “Ash”, the dark wood is “Walnut” and the other is “Oak”, all from Missouri. The 3 pictures show how the pattern goes over the edge and seems to change compared to the adjoining side. Opposite sides of the pedestal are the same, adjoining sides are different corresponding to the pattern going over the edge of the table from the top. It gives a different look to each foot on the table. The design does have a continuity going to the adjoining side of either the pedestal or edge of the table. I made this table in 2000 and got it finished in 2001. It is large table number 11. On the bottom I signed it, listed the wood, dated it and put the number of the table.

*****Update - Table is no longer available**** Anyone in Japan need a big, oak, outdoor dining table with two benches? We're moving and don't have space for it. We bought it a few years ago at Conran's. It seats from six to eight comfortably.
