Kigumi Trestle table -Spalted beach

Hand crafted, stunning 500 year old spalted beach trestle table inspired from a Kigumi Japanese table.

Spalted beach is a rare and beautiful wood that has the most incredible and beautiful grain. I was incredibly fortunate to get in contact with Joe and buy 8 or so planks of this beautiful and rare wood.

I was inspired to make my table by a Japanese carpenter call “Ishanti”. I selected the table top planks as the grain mirrors correctly to both sides and the wainey edge mated together well especially after a bit of back cutting. The top rail and legs are morticed and tenoned and the Style is through tenoned and has a sepele peg to keep it all in place.

Once i had mated the 2 wainey edges i made 4 randomly shaped, sepele bow ties and scribed them by hand and chisel – about an hour per bow tie O)

Last but not least I buttered all parts with Lippenwax a lovely, guey blend of Linsead oil and natural wax`s, that made the splated beach grain sing. Super stoked to say the least.

Should you like matching benches then please let know as have 2 planks reserved for this.
