Through designing the Enkei Table, we embraced the more challenging aspects of designing a piece of furniture from scratch and created a very special piece for some very special clients. When making a round table from timber, it’s not as easy as glueing together sheets or blocks of timber together and cutting it in a circle. We worked closely with the guys at Charles Sanford Woodturning who were able to bring together hundreds of wedges with a mirrored grain direction into a large circle, which was then turned by Charles himself. We then, entrusted the remarkable timber creations to Ray at Hawthorne Furniture Polishers to achieve a look that is not only technically difficult but artistic too.
