Penta Chunk Table | Sign'd on Stand
Scraps of burled wood, meet high gloss black lacquer and matte nickel.
Pentagons regularly occur in nature.  You have the pentagonal cross-section of okra, morning glories, and starfruit.  Also note the pentagonal configuration of the seeds in the cross-section of an apple.

In geometry, a pentagon is a five-sided polygon.  A pentagon may be simple or self-intersecting.  The internal angles of a simple pentagon total 540°.  A pentagram is an example of a self-intersecting pentagon.

The idea behind Penta Chunk was to take in irregularly-sided chunk of wood and have it become each of the six sides of a cube.  The result is a very interesting, unapologetic geometry.  Limitless possibilities in regards to material choices for the various sides.  I went a sophisticated route, marrying the wood with high gloss lacquers and metals.

Sign'd on Stand is a whimsical take on misdirection (note the base).
