Burr Walnut Table

Alongside our Dubai Shoe Cabinet and Dubai Chairs, this wasn’t an ordinary commission. The size, cost of materials, and sheer amount of time to be invested were enough to daunt any craftsmen, master or not.

This table made by master craftsman at Rowden Atelier, Daren Millman. Daren is a maker who is highly skilled in working with burr walnut veneers. The flowers inset in the table were cut using a traditional marquetry donkey and had to be perfect – without any allowance for error whatsoever. The same is true of the french polished finish on this table. French polishing is a finish that can only be mastered with experience – it must be felt in the hands of the maker, to know the difference between good and bad in the resulting finished surface.
