Greenwood Computer Table

A tricky commission this one. The client wanted a pair of trestles to old a 5mm thick glass tabletop, which would be used as a computer desk. They needed to be sturdy enough to hold the weight as well as beautiful. Gulp!

Anyway, I used a combination of ash, maple and hazel coppiced last year then included “wedged and pegged” joints to prevent the whole thing collapsing as the wood seasoned.

The result is truly stunning (even if I do say so myself :-)).
