    English Oak Burl with modified “cluster” base and East Indian Laurel “butterfly” joinery. A contemporary rendition of a 1960 George Nakashima design. High quality craftsmanship. Custom sizes and finishes available. The tree as an artist’s resource was of utmost importance to Nakashima, who described felling as akin to cutting diamonds. From the appearance of Nakashima’s finished pieces, one can almost imagine him wielding his bare hands to shape the wood. He preferred, and was highly sensitive to, the distinctive nature of walnut, ash and cherry. And he would intentionally choose wood that might have been rejected by other woodworkers for its imperfections. Those imperfections were to become his beauty marks.
