Corian Slab Tables
Robert’s design philosophy is to take an existing skill, material or trend and make it his own through change of scale, unexpected material or alternate use. Robert felt the popular trend of wood slab tables made famous by George Nakashima was in need of an update and he pays tribute to him with this fresh take.

Robert takes the age old technique of wood turning, expands it’s capabilities, pushes beyond it’s limitations to create innovative sculpted shapes of a size and scale never before seen. These turnings are offered in two very different forms:
Flashy in a “South Beach” style are the hand polished lacquer versions. These are impeccable in finish and exacting in shape.
Eco-friendly and organic, the wood versions are made from one piece of a log acquired from fallen trees. These logs areput directly on the lathe for turning. The chips fly and the shape is revealed. Air dry 2 months and back on the lathe for finishing. Robert allows grains to split, looks for worm holes and color variations.The wood speaks.
