Outdoor Table

This table is a variation on the theme of the large three-legged table. Like in the original, it expresses two different kinds of structure, a central post supporting a beam (as often found in Japanese architecture) and the more typical Western beam supported by two posts. Those two principles are joined by another series of three, tying the design together conceptually as well as physically. The table is constructed from solid Ipe wood, making it a perfect outdoor table, both due to its weight (it will not blow over) and to the innate rot resistance of the wood. The top is attached to the supports in a fashion that is invisible and therefore also keeps the fasteners hidden from the elements.
