The Shoal Coffee Table features a natural beach stone gripped tightly in a carved solid wood madrona base. The stone emerging through the carved wood base and the glass table surface evokes the feeling of a stone in the ocean currents. Different and dramatic from every angle, the weight of the stone is used to anchor the base, which supports the cantilever of the top. Both the stone and the salvaged Madrona tree were located just a few miles from my home.
