Once again Brian worked with Matt Church, an artist and blacksmith, at The Artisan's Gallery , to make the base for this table and three others, each with their own distinctive grain, colouring and details.
Matt Church designed the bases from wrought iron to fit and complement the unique shape of the table tops. As the tables are maple, Matt formed the legs to appear as branches and twigs with interlaced maple leaves.
Multiple layers of urethane were rolled onto the table tops. They were allowed to dry and then sanded between coats until there was a lustrous hard surface.
Once the table tops were complete, Brian positioned the bases on the wood and screwed them into place.

The choice of Matt Church's wrought iron bases with their maple leaf motif was a perfect match to the finished table top.

Close-up photos of the tables detail the beauty of the burls with their irregular grain, bark inclusions and rich contrasts of colour. These tables would be a splendid addition to any home.
