New collection inspired by reclaimed Senboku blocks

sambokuI recently acquired a dozen blocks of hardwood originally used in the port of Senboku, Japan (according to the stamps on the side of some blocks).
As I planed the wood, I discovered a surprising array of colors and figures emerging from the dark outer surface. This interesting wood inspired the new collection below.

Kambana coffee table:
Not all living spaces can accommodate large furniture. At 17 in (h) x 14 in (d) x 44 in (w), this coffee table design is ideal for smaller homes. This compact table features two 18 in x 9 in drawers, one on each end, which are big enough to store magazines. Its small footprint allows more room for foot traffic.

Dresser:
This dresser features 3 large drawers with custom-made pulls, and frame and panel construction for the sides. All joints are made with mortise and tenon joinery to ensure the longevity of the piece.

Bemiray console table:
“Bemiray” is the the word to describe patchwork in my native Malagasy language.
This console table is built from a combination of figured white oak (top) and teak (legs), with mortise and tenon joinery.

I have a very limited supply of this hardwood.
