Naka Side Table

PRODUCT STORY
Seth says: When I'm not surfing I love working with wood, especially when it comes from reclaimed and salvaged sources. Most of my wood comes directly from a small saw mill that specializes in trees from urban salvage, windfall, beetle kill and fire clean up. The wood is air dried which is a slow process but maintains the rich contrast in colors of the wood often dulled in commercial kiln drying. I love knowing that I can make a beautiful piece of furniture for someone to bring into their home and it's from wood that might have ended up in a landfill.

The Naka Table first came about as a piece that could use the smaller off cuts and leftovers from other projects in my shop. I like to make full use of materials and the table top came from the wedge cuts off of lamp legs I make. The over all look of the table was inspired by one of the true masters in woodworking and design, George Nakashima. I wanted to explore other forms for a simple side table, something clean and balanced with enough surface to be useful but not enough where it would invite clutter. I am an apartment dweller so I lean towards designs that don't demand a lot of space but still catch the eye. I also dropped the lower shelf down as a space for oversized art books which I have a habit of collecting. The tables are solid walnut with ash highlights on the top, the last photo is an alternate design with straight cut pieces for the top and through pins on all the joints.

Seth's beautiful table was designed to fit perfectly in a small space. We love that it was also specially designed with a lower shelf for over-sized art books! Do you know an apartment dweller who could make the most of the Naka Table?

We are fortunate to have a Seth original. The design and craftsmanship is exquisite. This Naka Side Table is another fine example of his art.

What's not to love about this table? I'm especially attracted to the grain and colours of the wood.

I actually like the design of the table, and have the perfect spot for it, but the wood is so dark I can't see the wood grain. Maybe if it were offered in a medium color wood...

Hi Victoria, if this piece was for sale here custom options could be available. From alternate top styles, dimensions and of course wood type. Furniture designs should be a foundation for a customer to personalize. Thanks for your comment.
