Wood Balance Table (Thailand)
Misshapen to the naked eye, this sturdy balance table appears as though it will tip over at the slightest vibration. In fact, the monkey wood table is designed to remain completely stationary, providing the most stable surface upon which to work.
ITEM#: 14108605This table creates the impression of a balanced piece with an angled riser from a small base to the larger top slab of wood. While creating the illusion of being precariously balanced, the large top of this table is sturdy and stable.

- Finish: Natural oil, agate grey over white
- Dimensions: 30 inches long x 16 inches wide x 18 inches high
- Products could have visible marks from tools used, patches from small repairs, knot holes, natural inclusions, and/or worm holes
Story Behind the Art:
Khun Na describes her art: 'My husband and I started out sourcing products for customers. Over the years I have seen many designs made by artisans and have been presented with sketches from many clients. We have to interpret the requested design so that it can be fashioned in a manner that the wood workers can make consistently and that is pleasing to the client from their original idea. We try to adapt existing wood workers designs to fit the client's desires. We have started to create our own designs using as much of the 'scrap and recycled' wood as possible. These designs grow from trends and ideas that we have seen over the years and that customer?s voice they would like to see.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

This is one solid table. The design is great but the quality control is lacking. The front 90 degree corners were hand cut and crooked, the overall finish has never been completed so it is rough and not fully stained. The good side is it I solid wood so repairs can be nade with a sander and can of stain.Read More
