George Nakashima Trestle Table

PRICE UPON REQUEST

George Nakashima Trestle Table ordered in the early 1950's. This table was owned from new by one family who had it custom made to fit their Kitchen nook. This table is made of solid walnut with three walnut butterfly joints that stablize the slabs of walnut as well as create small gap in the wood top. 

One of our earliest designs of George Nakashima, this piece was inspired by the simple lifestyle of early American Shakers. The knock-down design allows for an easily removable table-top. The table stop is secured to the legs with wedge and pin system. Each pin looks perfectly round but in fact with felt you can feel that each was chiseled by hand and are not perfectly round. 

This piece has some patina. We plan to clean it and oil it again. We plan to keep the patina (ie chips and dents and scratches) unless you would like the table refinished, we can do that too. George Nakashima was largely influenced by the Japanese belief of wabi-sabi, Nakashima revered in seeking beauty in imperfection — and had an uncanny ability and an almost psychic connection to the wood. 

This piece as made by George Nakashima. We also have a set of 6 Mira Chairs and two grass seated chairs with stool all purchased from the same owner.
