Meet the Artist, David Kimball
Block O Wood began because my wife wanted a table for our kitchen, but couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for. I have been doing woodworking for 15 years, so she decided that I needed to find the time to build her a table exactly the way she envisioned it.
The table was a work of love and had a tactile quality not found in today’s mass produced furniture. I loved making the table and found it so rewarding to work with wood in a new way.
At Block O Wood, I make a one of a kind table. Each piece of furniture starts with me hand selecting the wood. I use white oak, red oak, cherry, or old growth pine from here in Arkansas. The wood is dried in my wood kiln, then planed and cut to dimension. All assembly is done using hardwood dowel pins. I do not use any particle board, or nails, or laminated wood. All tables are solid wood and a classic style that goes in any decor.
Boards are hand stained. The top surface is not a single piece of wood, but made from separate hand stained boards. My wife and I make our own stains, so we can work with you to develop a custom color or colors for your table. Each board absorbs the stain differently, and this gives the table an individual quality that will never be copied. Your table will be a one of a kind piece that is a work of art to be handed down through generations.
Let me make a table especially for you.
