"Resurrection": Brown Oak Burl Dining Table
Maker: Jeffry Lohr
Materials: English Brown Oak Burl
Dimensions: 52" x 141" x 30" (tall) - sits 14
Description: The slabs that compose this table were cut from a 22,000 pound English Brown Oak Burl log that was imported from England by Rick Hearne. The tree was pronounced dead after ~300 years of life on the Alnwick Castle grounds (the site of filming for some of the Harry Potter movies). Mr. & Mrs. Allen in association with Jeffry Lohr purchased half of this extraordinary log to create an evolving work of art in mutual partnership.
The base of this table is composed of all bent wood laminations, eye- catching yet functional joinery, and a knock-down design for move-ability.
Due to the cost of the log itself and shipping it to the U.S., as well as the 6 months it took to design and make the table, the original commission was $78,000. Since it's completion, we have been able to recover the cost of the log through other commissioned projects and are able to offer it at the price listed below.
