Fir Slab Table + Bench

One of Matthew's recent furniture commissions.   Urban-salvaged Douglas Fir slabs from Portland with live-edges.  Custom-made steel legs.  The bench is from the same tree.  8'L x 46" x 2.25".  


What happens to redwood when it's used as cherry vat staves? Over the years, the cherry juice creates a graphic patina on the wood's surface.  When Matthew Sellens showed these boards to inspired flooring clients, they commissioned him to design and build this dining table with 2 benches.

One of the two benches

CANTILEVERED serving board

English Walnut is incredibly hard.  That didn't stop Matthew Sellens from hand-shaping this cantilevered board or platter or dish (what would you call it?).  The board works well for ripening fruit or serving slices of things.
