A Drum is one of man’s oldest and most widely adopted instruments. It is played from its top and the shape and size of the Drum greatly influences its sound.
To create this shape I’ve taken a full slice or section of a Cedar tree’s trunk and its diameter influences the diameter of the finished table. Prior to carving the piece it is dried. As it releases moisture during the drying process the wood’s growth rings contract especially on the newer wood located closest to the outside of the tree. This causes a wider crack on the outside of the log which opens towards the middle of the tree. It does not affect the structural capacity of the table but in fact directs our eyes to the center of the tree. The point in time where it all began.
