Rustic Wood Side Table
Just the right branch and a slice of trunk make this
simple sidekick. BY JOE SZUECS

Ihad a dying madrone (Arbutus menziesii) in my backyard.
Looking at its structure, I noticed a nice 3-pronged junction
of branches a few feet above my head. I thought this would
make a nice tripod base for a small side table, so with a bit of trial
and error and a slice of another tree trunk for the top, this little
rustic side table was born.
The antithesis to mass-produced commercial goods, this piece
is funky and original by definition, made with found forest objects.
It comes with a guarantee that no one else will have one just like it.
