Spectacular George Nakashima Minguren Coffee Table
Country: United States
Description: An exceptional example of Nakashima´s skilled craftmanship . A magnificent plank of English burl walnut was selected for the top, which has a complete free edge, with no cuts. The top is quite unusual, in that it gradually tapers from the wide burl root end into more typical walnut grain towards the narrow end. The base is a thick black walnut plank intersected with a long stretcher, and a spindle supporting the far end.
Techniques: english and black walnut
