This fabulous free form rimu burr or burl coffee table was made from a slice of burr that had been stored for 20 years. We designed a round hollow base base for the table useing a modern spin on the traditional coopering for making barrels.
The contradiction of the free form natural top with the perfectly formed circular “trunk” pedestal works really well. We finished the top in poured epoxy resin (liquid glass) which brings out the fabulous grain and colours of the compression wood in the burr timber.
A piece like this is natures art and every piece of burr is unique.
Please call me to discuss a version of this table.
