Camphor trestle server

The design of the trestle table converts the earliest forms of tables made from rock or marble around the 16th century, and later, a board of timber positioned over trestle legs, to a modern urban table suitable for a contemporary space. To comfortably suspend the slab onto the leather sling, the edges were shaped to mould into the leather. Turning them inside out and positioning it down the centre of the table ensured that the detail of the natural live grain of the original edges were not lost.

New double butt leather, shaped and moulded around the contours of the trestles, complements and beautifully frames the wooden slab. Black wax cord stitching rounds off this ensemble to match the matt powder coated legs.

THE CAMPHOR TREE

DESCRIPTION

Family: Lauraceae  |  Synonym: Camphora officinarum Nees ex Steud

The camphor is an evergreen tree with a dense, rounded canopy, a massive trunk and camphor-scented leaves.

WHERE ARE THEY FOUND?

The tree is declared an invader in South Africa and originates from east Asia. It was introduced into South Africa in the 1700s as an ornamental tree. In 1942, five trees planted in the 1700s were proclaimed national monuments.

WOOD PROPERTIES

The medium-density wood is mostly used for light construction such as furniture, cabinets, decorative pieces and chests. Due to the large size of the tree trunk, it is possible to work with big boards for larger items such as benches and servers.

INTERESTING FACTS

It is a pleasant wood to work with and has a lovely aroma, but the sawdust can be toxic!
