The Burnett Table

 “I’ve seen your hall table, and I want a vase table in the same style”  This is how the Burnett table developed, an idea, some sketches, more sketches, a design lots of ideas and finally the finished piece.

As soon as I had done the first sketches I knew this was also the piece for some amazing chestnut burr and curly birch I had been drying in my workshop for several years.  There would be lots of fun and challenges to  turn the rough timber into the final piece in my mind.

The burr was cut into thick veneers, dried and prepared for use, whilst the birch was going to give me many problems with its incredible and complicated figuring, lots of planning, and lots more sharpening.
