Monticello Tables


Here is a new set of tables and benches made from the Monticello Tulip Poplar II. 

Each table has a top of Monticello Tulip Poplar II, except for #27, which has a top of Tulip Poplar I with the bark on both sides.  They all have black walnut skirt and legs.

Each bench has a top from the Tulip Poplar II, and hand-hewn black walnut legs split and worked out by the West Virginia artisan Jim Lakiotes.  I finish dried them here and fit them to the tops. 

The thick bench planks were selectively sawn from the log when the boards were being milled, and there is a limited amount of them. There are approximately twelve more of these thick benches possible from the sawn planks on hand, and eight more of the oval cross cuts off the large branch bases on the main trunk.  They were carefully air-dried on site here, then taken to a kiln for finished drying.  There are two more of the very largest cross-sections from the base of the main trunk that are still air-dry seasoning.

All tables are 17 1/2" tall.  The finish is a conversion varnish, very tough and durable.
