FREE FORM DINING BASE



This table was just recently finished and shipped to a client out of town. It's shown bare and cleaned before the final finish of tarnished gold was applied.

COLD HAMMERED COCKTAIL TABLE


This is a table I made back in the late 1980's. Each piece of material was hand hammered cold. I doubt I have the patience or energy anymore to do that! The scrolls and wrapped stretcher were done with a torch. Personally I have yet to find a job where a torch was not as good or better then a forge. I get a lot of grief from peers who love their forges and rib me about getting rid of the one I had but never used. I just find it a waste of heat and energy when a torch gives the exact same results. I won't argue with centuries of tradition but I just had to put my two cents in!
