Overview

These 500 tables are more than just practical places to set a coffee cup or notepad; they’re inspired works of art. Esteemed juror Andrew Glasgow has selected a wide array of styles and forms, from pieces that showcase masterful woodwork to ones that feature alternative materials and aesthetic sensibilities. The striking examples include Gord Peteran's end table fashioned from swirling red electrical wire, Boris Bally's small square transit table made of recycled aluminum traffic signs, and Stephen Whittlesey's "Eddy," which uses driftwood, salvaged oak, and chestnut. More than 300 artists are featured, and every work offers readers stunning craftsmanship, constant surprise, and beauty.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A feast of ingenuity, grace, and sometimes straight-up wit ... (that) offers lessons in exquisite craftsmanship. You’ll be glued to your seat admiring the ingenuity of modern furniture makers.” — Christian Science Monitor

"If you are looking for ideas for a project, an excellent source is Lark Books' 500 Series. While this series covers many craft media, woodworkers will find the most inspiration from 500 Cabinets, 500 Tables, 500 Chairs, 400 Wood Boxes, and 500 Wood Bowls. Even if you are not looking for ideas, there is much in these books to appreciate and enjoy. You will probably do lots of nodding, plenty of eye widening, some jaw dropping, and, naturally, some wincing. Each book delivers a huge quantity of outstanding work." — Rob Porcaro, Heartwood: Inside the Woodshop
