Helix dining table
“The helix dining table is a project I’ve had in the back of my mind for a long time. It is the dining table version of my original helix console table”
The helix dining table is a project I’ve had in the back of my mind for a long time. It is the dining table version of my original helix console table. The basic design of the frame remains the same, but with an identical mirror of itself doubling the depth and supporting an extra-large top. The result is a truly unique table that will be the centre of any dining space.
The helix form can be found in many areas of life but is rarely found in furniture. This stunning contemporary design centres around two interlocking curved helices forming the stand for a glass top. It is simple in nature yet still jumps out from its surroundings. Its plunging curves are simple in nature but unmistakably sculpted to please the eye.
The preservation of traditional woodworking techniques is a staple part of the pieces design. Wedged scarf joints are used to join the curved timbers end to end. This ancient joint is a pleasure to cut. Originally designed for timber framed building construction, the scarf joint is rarely used in modern day carpentry. By using it in my designs I am keeping skills alive that may otherwise be lost to history.
The helix dining table can be made in a variety of timbers and sizes. The shape of the top can be varied to suit the space. In this case an Oak frame supports a flat ended oval top in 12mm toughened glass.
