Tuna table

The top of this standard-height table was made from two broken lengths of thin pine board which had been well rounded and smoothed during their time at sea before I found them washed-up on the shore at Harty Ferry, Faversham. One end of the table-top is set into a naturally hollowed length of blackened oak, leaving the opposite end ragged and irregular

The legs and rails are made from driftwood pine and the stretcher-bar tenons are pegged by two small bones found on the beach at Seasalter.

The table also features a drawer with a carved front depicting two fish biting the drawerknob.
