Big Red Table



This table is made from a slab cut off the outside of a sequoia tree (also known as giant redwood) that grew up, like myself, not far from Greystones.There was a lot of wood in this tree. It was felled as part of a house site clearance. I got the tree milled by a local sawer into various dimensions for different jobs. This piece is only suitable for indoors. You can see the white sapwood is dominant with just a bit of the more desirable red heartwood visible down the centre. Outdoors the sapwood would last only about as long as one generation of an iPhone does. But the heartwood would last ages. It is about nine foot long.
