This is meant to be a side table to a chair. The reservoir top was designed and inspired in favor of pragmatism. How often do little parts fall of a table top and lose themselves on a dark carpet. The border created through the “carved out” center prevents this. I don’t see tables like these for sale; it follows the “If you want it done right, do it yourself” principle.
The solid block of wood was reclaimed and purposed from an old bench.
Symbolism of a carved our Indian canoe was well as farmland motif inspired by the way some younger girls are prone to dress today as influenced by our culture.
