Along with the ridiculous cement tile fireplace for the Mar Vista home, I got the opportunity to design and oversee fabrication of a gorgeous live edge dining table. I went to House of Hardwood (where we found the mantel wood) and worked with David to create a true work of art.
The first step was choosing a one of kind slab of wood, Monkeypod to be exact. chose the slab first.
Then I figured out the best sizing and created a simple plan for how to use the monkey pod slab as the table top and black walnut wood for the table legs and seamless benches. two to be exact.
David estimated 2-3 weeks which I thought was optimistic. In fact, it took closer to 10 weeks which makes more sense to me given all the details and labor this table required. It was super worth the wait. Look at this beauty.
Yup, incredible. My client loves her table and the fact that it is a one of kind piece. It ended up costing about $3500 including materials and labor which is comparable to a pre-made showroom live edge slab table. Not too bad price wise and super special.
