Friend of Collate, and someone who's work I admire greatly these days, New Zealand born designer Jamie McLellan has been in touch with some images of a recently completed project. The Lumber Dining Table is two slabs of book-matched sapele, held in place by a central spine which is exposed through the table top. The design uses the same language as other more recent Lumber pieces designed by Jamie, and has been lovingly handmade with recent collaborator and cabinet maker David White. What was conceived initially as a meeting table for their Auckland based boat house studio has now become a build-to-order offering in two sizes.
