As in a lot of my work, the joinery is the

focus of the design.

On this table, the horizontal pieces are

connected to the verticals using a

mortise and tenon joint on one end.  On

the other end, I fire weld the two pieces

together.  Go to Production/Process to

see an example.

Fire welding is the joining of two pieces

of metal by means of pressure or

hammering.  The metal must be very

hot and brought together quickly for a

strong weld.  Needless to say, these

particular welds were difficult to

accomplish.
