Product description: Carved from a solid rosewood tree stump, I plan to use the proceeds from selling these tables to return to SE Asia where Iíll be making contact with local wood carvers and tree experts for more information. The man from whom I bought the Dalbergia (rosewood) tree stumps in Yunnan, China said they came from Laos which meant they could be D. chinchinensis, or D. oliveri, or D. cultrata, or another sub-species, all of which grow in the Myanmar-Thailand-Laos, Cambodia-Viet Nam area. I sent a sample to the US Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, WI, and was told that it was impossible to identify the species. This was corroborated by an expert on line whom I contacted and who was, coincidentally, a graduate of FPL. Please read my bio for more information concerning the project of creating employment to local artists in SE Asia by carving functional art tables from exotic wood stumps.

During my apprenticeship I had learned first to clear away material that was rotted and diseased. Then with the wood's integrity intact, I learned to recognize the flow of movement and the overall balance of the piece. This became the beginnings of what I felt was recognizing the spirit of the wood - that which...read more
