The tree this piece came from was destined to be destroyed to widen an existing road. I heard about it and went to look at it.
Manitoba bur oak is an extremely dense wood, especially heavy when still green. We cut a 1.2 meter (4 foot) length from its trunk, but Reg and I could not even lever it onto the trailer. We had to go and find someone with a front end loader to lift it into the trailer so we could transport it to my sawyer to be cut.
At home, I did some calculations and determined the piece weighed over 272 kg (600 pounds)! I am happy to report that the table, although still quite heavy, can now be taken apart and moved by one person.
This is an excellent example of handcrafted furniture made by INAKA. This unique contemporary handmade wood table would be an asset to any home. High quality custom designed handmade wood furniture is a reflection of the owner as well as of the artist.
