Windswept Spalted Oak, 56″w x 45″d X 18″h, semi-gloss finish, embossed leather, custom hand-forged iron legs, custom glass insert. A commissioned piece made for a family in the Midwest with one directive: “it needs to be pretty special”. Oak Hill Iron in Morganton, NC., had this “Lightening Strike(!)” slab, it’s magnitude and character never stop showing off.
Estimates put this tree’s timeline at 100+ years old, 15 years laying down after a lightening strike before being harvested. The character is unimaginable, the edge is unspeakable and appears delicate resembling a New England Coastline. In places it appears molten. The textures…the grains…the bark… What a wonderful project and incredible outcome.
