The trunk/pedestal of the table is tied in a knot. This was done by cutting the two trees up into many pieces, and then reconnecting them into a more interesting form. The trunk is only fastened to itself inline--meaning the sides of the trunk that pass near each other are not connected in anyway (nor do they touch).
This was an interesting experiment in woodworking, and the method used for making this is actually quite simple.
Thanks for taking a look.
Step 1: Old Christmas trees
I have a small stockpile of (mostly) dried Christmas tree trunks from which I chose two of the same species for this project. However, any relatively straight piece of tree branch or small tree would work.
