I saw this table in someone’s house today while I was working. It’s amazing–constructed of polished and sanded burled wood (yes, I am aware “burled wood” is really tree cancer), with all the holes, cracks, and depressions filled with tiny pieces of turquoise, fools’ gold, quartz, and other semi-precious tiny stones of different sizes suspended in some kind of laminate which then fills the holes for a smooth surface. There were chairs to match the table too–each one was different.
The second photo is a close up of the detail.
I wonder how much a table like this would cost. I bet it must have been pretty expensive.
