Sawtooth coffee table
Sawtooth coffee table: Maple veneer, birch plywood, pigmented conversion varnish; 18h x 22″d x 40.5″w. $4400.
I built the Sawtooth table just before my recent show at the 2019 Smithsonian Craft show as a speculative piece. This bold -shaped form had been catching my eye as a drawing in my sketchbook for some time and I decided it would provide an exciting element in my booth…and eventually an elegant addition to someone’s home.
The structure of the Sawtooth is comprised of a baltic birch hardwood plywood frame. The form is then entirely veneered with a full 1/16″ thick maple veneer. After much meticulous sanding and detailing, the table is sprayed with coats of pigmented conversion varnish, an extra hard, two part, lacquer – like product. The chartreuse color is actually matched to Sherwin Williams’ “lively yellow”. After this pigmented conversion varnish, the Sawtooth is sprayed with a final protective clear coat.
This table is available and ready to be shipped or delivered to its lucky new home. If a slightly different size or a different color is desired, please contact me to discuss recreating a new version.
