Black walnut dining table - Dante

"I must say the process...was almost as notable as the finished product itself. Along the way the guys would send me pictures and even invited me to the shop to check out the progress and give suggestions and comments on the way the slabs would be finished. This collaboration ultimately led to a unique black walnut slab that can't be found anywhere else in the universe. And for that reason alone it was worth every penny.
As for the table legs we didn't want to be normal. Because normal is weird. So while the guys were working on the slabs I was designing some potentially lethal table legs that look more like a Jackson Pollock painting than conventional furniture support. Needless to say, the guys were thrilled to make this a reality. We discussed material and fabrication and determined plasma-cutting a giant half inch steel sheet was the way we were going to go because, as you have already guessed" -Dante P.
 
"It took me two weeks to unpack everything and assemble all of my furniture at my new place. Pictures were hung, rugs were laid and fung shui was in full affect. But something was missing. I noticed the large empty space in my apartment was also a large empty space in my heart. So I called up the guys at Timber Forge and got the ball rolling on a gargantuan dining table because YOLO.
This is when they were first starting out and while  most would be deterred from their professional infancy - I saw greatness in their eyes. We talked for an hour in a little coffee shop across from the penitentiary about possible directions and the projects they'd previously completed. We had finally agreed on a live edge black walnut table and Jack and Louie were on their way to the lumberyard within a week to find some slabs that fit our idea. They sent me pictures of potential options while they were at the lumberyard and even sent me some really sexy selfies. We decided on a beautiful set of slabs and even grabbed a smaller one for a entertainment console because, once again, YOLO. They loaded the slabs onto their truck and hurdled back to Philly to get working on them.
Within a a couple weeks the slabs were completed but I must say the process in between was almost as notable as the finished product itself. Along the way the guys would send me pictures and even invited me to the shop to check out the progress and give suggestions and comments on the way the slabs would be finished. This collaboration ultimately led to a unique black walnut slab that can't be found anywhere else in the universe. And for that reason alone it was worth every penny.
