For the base, my intention was to create something that complimented the top and yet took the piece beyond the category of being just another live edge table where the sole or primary focus was on the top.
One thing I like about this table is that it reveals different things about itself when viewed from different angles and different distances. I hope it has enough interesting visual and tactile elements in it to keep its owners pleased for a long time.
I like to imagine a toddler crawling around under this piece and experiencing it as his (her) little hideaway or fort, then pulling himself up on the top to get a better view of the world. This table could probably hold up a small elephant.
Hopefully, the opening in the top is too small for a little round head to get itself stuck in.
The nicely figured panels suspended in the center of each pedestal are Texas pecan.
