The design of Box Table
uses the geometry of various types of traditional joinery to complement
the overall form of the piece. The relatively uniform grain pattern
of the Tasmanian Myrtle provides a homogenous background for which
to highlight this joinery.
The most striking grain pattern in the timbers used was the end grain
of the American Oak, which was featured on the top of the box.
of end grain of American Oak
includes finger joints, through mortise
and tenons, halved joints and inlays.
