The Flat River Furniture designer likes to get creative and this table definitely reflects that. Titled, "If a Tree Falls in the Woods," you won't find this one anywhere else. Is it possible to have a style called Modern Organic? If so this is it.
Crotch wood is typically harder, dense wood that frequently exhibits a beautiful grain. It is caused by forces exerted within the tree to support a main branch where it joins the trunk. The compression process that strengthens the tree so it can support the branch causes the wood fibers to twist and compress, creating various figures and grains that can be very beautiful. Unlike burls, crotches have grain that, while quite distorted, is basically the same grain as the other wood in the tree.
Using the live edge of the trees’ natural grain, following that edge and incorporating it into furniture brings the outdoors inside in a way that no other furniture does. The feeling is pure, the look is impressive, and the selection is truly one of a kind.
