Walnut Table with Waterfall Detail
With hidden steel structural supports and plenty of glue, this piece of furniture achieves a stunning continuous grain from tabletop to legs.
I really enjoy the opportunity to photograph unique, hand-crafted furniture. Shooting the details is always interesting, often textural, and sometimes abstract. The challenge is showing the entire piece, such as this walnut table, in its setting. The styling and angle had to be just right so the attention is not taken away from the table, but enough is shown of the room to give it context. I needed to show, from this angle, the stunning continuous grain from the table top to the legs. This walnut tabletop was built with a very unique waterfall detail. It was created with hidden steel structural supports and plenty of glue.
