Alice Coffee Table
English Sycamore, Leather
110cm x 50cm x 50cm

I am always on the lookout for ways of adding colour to my designs but I don't like the idea of staining and dyeing wood: I love wood just as it is.

So when I came across these colourful and textured leather tiles I decided that I would use them in a piece of furniture.

My plan was to make the table in time to exhibit it at the Celebration of Craftsmanship in Cheltenham.
But as it often happens, the deadline approached and I was running out of time.
Fortunately Mel stepped in to do the final laquering: definitely a keeper, isn't she?!?
