Shizen Table

This small table was originally a commission for the Banks St. Coffee Table. I ordered the wood - two enormous planks of cherry from my friends at Horizon Wood Products.  Gorgeous!  But...wait.  Both planks had a long, slow curve along their lengths.  It was easy to picture the tree, standing in a cold forest, arcing gracefully to the sky.  That was how the tree had grown, and it didn't seem right to cut it square.
