Round White Marble Top
In November of 2019 The Handmade Table joined forces with one of the country’s noted marble producers and hosted a special event for designers from all parts of the country. The event was called Sticks & Stones and was an evening dedicated to furniture creations made of wood and marble. This table is one of the pieces made for that show event and is just now being offered for sale.
The top is made from white Georgia marble. The base is made from segments of very old wooden pikes that were a tool used to raise a barn. They were used by the men raising the barn to push the heavy barn from a flat, prone position to vertical and upright where the beams were grabbed and pegged into place. The round pikes were found in an old mill in Central Pennsylvania and brought to our studio where they waited patiently for the right place and time to be part of an extraordinary piece of furniture. I am quite fond of the round theme for this piece. By that I mean the round tabletop, the round pikes and used in a round base for the table.
