Stitched Table

year unknown, also made to order

Butterfly joints are made, like sutures, to prevent a split in wood from breaking further apart. Using wood scrapped because of their splits, I used butterfly joints in such a way that their sentiment outweighed their function. Here, Brooklyn-based design and furniture company Uhuru operates on the same split-joint shtick. Although their material and design compete with the sentiment behind my pieces, their table still makes me warm and fuzzy.
