Item Description

This Alder plank was thrown into a firewood pile at a local wood mill because it checked (cracked) I saw its potential and decided to allow it to spalt (partially rot) for a year. Spalting is the process of controlled rotting that is shown on the plank as the fine black lines. To hold the plank from splitting further I incorporated these very unique walnut keys and and repeated the design curve throughout the piece. The angular Granite stone counters the smooth curves of the table and anchors the base. This piece is for sale at the Art Junction Gallery in Whistler, British Columbia.

Testimonials

"Thank you Burns for having your exceptional and unique custom art furniture in our gallery in the recent exhibition, “The Art of the Landscape” at the Ferry Building Gallery. Your work speaks to the natural landscape of the West-coast and I am in awe of the way in which you juxtapose the various types and shapes of wood and stone to create truly brilliant one-of-a-kind furniture. Our gallery patrons and the visiting public very much admired and appreciated your designs and craftsmanship"

Ruth Payne, Ferry Building Gallery

"I had the pleasure of working with Burns on a large (8500 sq. ft.) comprehensive residential renovation project where he worked directly with interior designers, contractors, homeowners and myself as the project designer. Burns brought professionalism to every discussion and produced exceptional quality built-ins, furniture and mill work. I recently revisited the home (6 years later) and was very pleased to see that all of Cornice Furniture’s work, despite some being exposed to harsh climatic pressures is still as beautiful as the day it was built. Burns has the ability to seamlessly work with others while coordinating design furnishing that compliment the overall design vision. I look forward to any opportunity to work with burns in the future and see his involvement as an asset in all regards for supplying custom cabinetry and furniture."

"My name is Daniel Parke, and I am principal of Salal Architecture, a small design oriented architecture firm based on Bowen Island, near Vancouver. I have known Burns for over 3 years. I initially worked with him in the design and construction of his own house, and he has also built custom millwork and furniture in my own home. I always enjoy working with Burns. He is a true craftsman. I meet many different trades on job sites, and Burns is one of a rare breed of highly talented craftsmen who are increasingly difficult to find. He is technically very good with wood, he understands design and aesthetics, is very detailed oriented, is very current with issues around sustainability, is very professional and is a great communicator. I have no hesitation in recommending Burns Jennings. Sincerely,"

Daniel Parke, MAIBC
