Tweed
H 585 X W 350 X D 210 mm ( H 23" X W 13-3/4" X  D 8-1/4")
Price: ~800
Side table in American hard maple, stained with ferrous sulphate to turn it into harewood (aka greywood), and finished with lacquer.  An edge glued top is attached via a long rail and two cross rails to a pair of curved end slabs with fluting on their concave faces. The curved profile was created by edge gluing five staves together as in coopering. Each stave was fluted prior to gluing them together, and the end result is somewhat reminiscent of linenfold carving which first became popular in northern Europe during the fifteenth century.

An article on using ferrous sulphate, aka green copperas, to make harewood or greywood out of European sycamore or maples and to give oak a grey or blue colour can be found here.
