Olive Wood Side Table
With Forged Rebar Base
This was the first time I’ve had the opportunity to work with Olive. Olive wood is rare compared to others, and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. It was a dirty brown color when it came into my studio. I had many ideas for this piece, but none seemed to evolve past the sketch book. Looking for inspiration, I started sanding the wood and a beautiful warm yellow hues with black grain started to appear. I started to think of ways to mimic the beautiful grains of the olive wood and decided on a hand forged rebar design finished with a black patina. The organic design flows in and out and changes as you move around the piece mirroring the rich black grain of the olive. The texture and ridges of the rebar give a very unique approach to steel.
