Jethro table and bench
Jethro is a modern table and bench that takes inspiration from the rustic tradition of old barn typologies. It is a design that uses traditional joinery in a refined and sensitive way. The table top is supported by two leg frames that are bolted to the top and then braced by a long rail peg at either end. Beautiful details make this well-crafted design stand out. The legs are broad but have chamfered inside edges, which catch the light and create a slim silhouette, the chamfered table top adds to the light aesthetic. The end rails of the base frame have through tenons that are wedged on the outside of the legs, showing a textured end grain detail, they are fixed with walnut pegs, which contrast well with the solid ask of the table. Sarah Kay has employed her classical understanding of woodworking in this design, creating something that is both layered and beautifully simple. Made in either solid European ash with American walnut pegs, or solid American walnut with White American oak pegs.
