This bedside table is my latest commissioned work. It is made of butternut.
Although some woodworkers don’t like to use knots in their work, I really like the focal point which a knot can provide. The grain around the knot is also very interesting and pretty.
In the past, when using wood with two live edges, I have employed a few different techniques for addressing the cut ends. In this case, I sculpted the ends so that the profile at each edge matched the angle of the live edge. Since the angles of the live edge were not equal, this of course resulted in a twisted end-grain surface.
