The Apollo Table is the centerpiece for my senior exhibition at MCAD-
made from ebonized ash wood, with a laminated plywood top.
looking at the underside of the table you can see that the legs do not touch in the center, creating the X shaped opening in the top.
the four top panels are laminated in a Nevamar “White Essence” laminate- a nice cool white with flecks of grey. This contrasts the rich black of the ebonized ash wood quite nicely.
The name of the “Apollo table” is derived from the Apollo space program. I chose a name as a continuation of the space-theme I’ve been using for much of my connected recent work (including the Orbit shelves and Meteorite table). The name is a reflection on the landing-craft look of the flaring tapered legs and the white top reminicent to me of the lunar surface.
