Vasari's Table
Shown here in cherry

Vasari lived from 1511 until 1554. He had a table in his home in Arezzo, Italy that inspired me to make this piece. He was a friend of Michelangelo and was famous for his book, "Lives of the Artists."

I wanted to incorporate more carved handwork in our furniture and the top decorative surround is copied from the original, as are the molded surrounds to the panels. The original also had large turned legs with massive lower crossbars.

This hand-carved decoration is a part of furniture making that is very hard to replicate using machinery and is very much to do with "working" the wood.

The table is available with a heavily hand-planed top or regular hand-planed top.
