Custom furniture: End table 

Handmade end table with riveted legs.

This simple end table was made without welding of any kind. The top and bottom are plate steel, and the connections are all riveted.  All materials are mild steel, with a clear satin finish.

This shot shows how the leg passes through a hole in the top and is riveted over. This joint is strong and beautiful, not requiring grinding or dressing as would a welded joint. In this way the honestly expressed joinery becomes an essential element of the design.

In designing a piece of custom furniture, the goal is to produce work that is functional, beautiful, and original. To that end, I am constantly producing work like this to explore new ideas. Any of the ideas on these pages can be expanded or explored further in new designs.
