5 Degree Parsons Dining Table

At first glance an ordinary parsons table, in fact the angles of this table are all pushed in toward the center by five degrees, a bit like my 5 Degree Bench from years ago. Here the effect is a perspective that seems a little wrong. The table is built of locally harvested and processed “green” ash, all from the same tree. The three wide boards of the top are sequential, so while the grain is wild and dramatic, it reflects itself for real harmony. If you look closely, you can pick out the 8 or 10 lead balls from a shotgun round when the tree was very young. There are some in all three boards of the table top. At nearly 8 feet long, it will seat eight easily, or ten if you’re friends. Available now at $5250.
