This was table nr. 4 at Amber and the first of a series made with big format beams, where the raw material is left in near original dimension instead of sawing it down to more versatile and join-friendly standard formats.
It was also the first one with a glass tabletop.
Probably the feature that strikes the eye first is the rusty iron “mask” that covers one of the legs. It wasn´t in the original draft but once we started fabricating we realized that due to some areas of the beam being damaged we were having to carve away a fair amount of wood. We weren´t concerned structurally speaking since the legs were well oversize but we were losing the boxy contour so we decided to add the heavy rectangular piece of iron to devote ourselves to the geometry we originally had in mind
The legs are composed by 3 pieces of timber assembled together. The joinery would have been pretty straightforward if we´ve had 4 flat and true faces but in this case we hardly got a single one to reference upon!
The legwork is dismountable for transport.

    STORY

    One of the quarters of the historic city of Cádiz that we hold utmost appreciation for is the Barrio del Pópulo, allegedly one of the most ancient neighborhoods in Western Europe. Around March 2019 we got a great chance to retrieve some local relics!.

    We were contacted by a contractor that was demolishing nr.4 Calle Fabio Rufino, a bourgeois house from mid XIX. century, right behind the building that hosts the Town Hall nowadays.

    We were able to access the site 2 times during the works. We were struck by the beauty of its historic rooflight, the main architectural feature of a graceful entrance porch that lead to the main patio.

    The bounty amounted for a total of about 50 beams but the highlight was the large sum of girders (oversize main beams) that we got hold of. Some of them include fine carpentry dovetail joints and even handwritten messages from the woodworker to the builder!.

    As a consequence this collection will definitely have some massive tables were the plumpness of the oversize beams is pivotal part of the design.
