Blood Diamond Table
I wanted to make something that would capture people’s interest, also showcasing my traditional cabinetmaking skills.
The table is regency design using Walnut burr and Maple inlays and cockbeading. Putting my contemporary spin on things, all cockbeading, veneer patterns and profiles are diamond shaped combining the theme ‘ Blood Diamond’. This is apparent on the top. A ‘diamond’ sits in the centre of the top surrounded by inlays in a mirrored scallop, perfect to bounce light. Also on the top, you will see pools of ‘blood’ supporting the controversial theme ‘Blood Diamond’.
From every angle, the more you look the more you will find.
