Orchid Tables

These tables were fabricated with the use of Marquetry technique for the inlay of the tops.  The flowers, stems and leaves represent Phalaenopsis Orchids.  All three tables share similar, but not identical tops.  They vary in size, veneer colors, background woods and overall design and construction.

The Orange Orchid table was in the 2007 Design In Wood Ehibition.  It received the Vendors’ Choice award and was placed on the Perpetual Trophy at that competition.  The table is featured in the December 2007 edition of WOODWORK Magazine, Page 50.  This table was designed to be a display piece in a large space or foyer.  The curved uprights were constructed with the used of a vacuum press, bending poplar and mahogany veneer and solids.  They are attached to the base by way of a screw retained Mortise and Tenon joint.

The Breakfast Table has bleached white anigre flowers, a walnut background, macassar ebony border and tulip wood inlay.  The base is a four sided, convex, vacuum bent lamination with macassar ebony veneer as well as walnut solids.  The table is 48″ round and seats four.

The final table in the series is a 36″ round coffee table.  It has bleached white anigre veneer flower petals on a Pommele Sepele background.  The base is constructed with mahogany solids.

All three tables have Art Deco design cues. They breakdown into multiple component parts for ease of finishing and transport.  Each required approximately 400 hours to design and fabricate.  They are have an extremely durable conversion varnish finish.  The tables are intended for daily use.
