This was an unusual project, the client wanted to use an alloy wheel as the focal point. The design in construction was inspired from the multi spoke alloy, making spines as support to fix the bottom and top circles together. The circles are made from eight segments which we veneered then shaped to suit the circumference of the rim.
The choice of veneer had to compliment the multi spoke design and be elegant. Macassar Ebony had to be the species for its vista and grain pattern. For practical reasons and function we have put a glass top on this table, adding to the gloss finish.
