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.
